We are seeking two new Community Governors to join the board. In order to get an external community perspective, we are particularly looking for candidates who are from our local community and have no children at the school. Through joining our governance team, you will be able to directly make a difference and contribution to the children in our community. From a personal development perspective, you will have the opportunity to develop a range of management skills and access a wide pool of training resources. We encourage applications from anyone keen, committed and willing to learn.
Battling Brook Primary School is a friendly, welcoming and inclusive school which lies at the heart of the local community. We currently have 607 pupils at the school, ranging from the ages of 4 to 11. Additionally, our pre-school, Little Battlers, takes children from the ages of 3-5. We have a wonderful cohort of children with a range of learning needs from varying backgrounds. Our goal is to cater to each of our children's learning and development needs in a manner which engages them and helps them to flourish. Our school has a strong and consistently good Ofsted record.
We are committed to cultivating a happy and thriving school in which all people feel they belong and have a thirst for ongoing learning. We aim to be an outstanding and effective school, promoting ethical and value based aims, preparing children for modern Britain in a changing world.
Our school aims promote equality, active learning, compassion and honour through four core principles:
- We are all of equal worth (Equality)
- I will do my best and do my best for you (Active Learning)
- If you need me, I will be there for you (Compassionate)
- we take pride in each other’s achievements (Honour) - because we live, learn and succeed as one body.
Our governing board of 12 meets for two hours in the evening approximately once a month.
