Meet our Governors
Ian Mackenzie - Vice Chair of Governors: I'm proud to be part of the team as a member of the Governing Board at Broughton Moor Primary serving the community and supporting the school. Being part of the team that helps our school grow and develop is both a rewarding and challenging role. The reward part is seeing & hearing just how well our children are developing and growing through experiential learning provided by our whole school teaching team. One of the biggest challenges is the impact of the current economic climate is having in being able to help provide the best possible quality of education for our pupils, with the limited resources that we have. As a governing board we, continue to develop our skills in governance leadership and strategic planning, in continuing to support and challenge the school headteacher to make informed decisions and best possible outcomes: for school; pupils and our community.

The school’s leaders are very well supported by the governing body who share the same determination to improve the school still further.
Governors have an accurate view of the school’s strengths and areas for improvement. They are well informed and have a good understanding of pupil performance data and, as a result, they are able to challenge as well as support leaders. Governors also have a good understanding of the quality of teaching through the headteacher’s reports and the programme of governor visits. They are aware of the links between teachers’ pay and performance. Governors have a good understanding of how the pupil premium and the additional sport funding are used and the positive impact these are having on pupils’ progress and their physical well-being. Governors bring a wide range of skills which they use to good effect and where there are gaps they actively seek training to fill them. Financial management is secure and resources are managed effectively.
"Visited parent and toddler group, Y3/4, Y5/6, 1/Y2 and R. I was amazed at the numbers attending toddler group – they filled the hall! This must be a good way of introducing young children and their parents to the school.
The atmosphere throughout the classrooms was calm and purposeful – children remained focused on their task.
Throughout the morning visit I didn’t hear an adult need to raise their voice or speak firmly to a child".

"It was a pleasure to attend a meeting of the school council on Monday 7th September. The children discussed issues of concern to the school with interest and focus. They listened carefully to what each other had to say and made very relevant responses.
I'll be discussing the action points from the meeting with the rest of Governors, to see what we can achieve and I'm certainly hoping to be invited to more school council meetings".
