The school has a Local Governing Body (LGB) which is responsible for making decisions about the running of the school. Its power is delegated from the board of Trustees of Ebor Academy Trust. for more information regarding the trustees, please see the Ebor academy Trust website.
The LGB consists of members of the local community interested in education and no formal qualifications are required as full training is given. The headteacher is automatically a member of the LGB because of their position, but cannot be the chair. Parents are welcome to join the LGB and when there are vacancies, we particularly welcome applicants with skills in managing budgets, legal work, human resources, running a business or any work connected with young people.
We currently have a vacancy for a Parent Governor – for more information please speak to Mrs Shaw.
A message from Diane Quigley, our Chair of Governors:
“On behalf of the governing body I’d like to welcome you to the updated Marfleet Primary School website. The website has been completely overhauled and I hope that you will agree that it provides parents with more and better information and will be updated daily as necessary to alert parents to events taking place, letters coming home etc.
In addition we hope it gives a flavour of the school’s ethos for those who are thinking of registering their children to join our school community. As governors we work with staff to ensure that every child achieves his or her potential. We have high expectations of all – from behaviour, which sets the tone of the school, to academic achievement. Continuous improvement is what we strive for and the excellent results achieved in KS2 in recent years together with improving outcomes throughout the school demonstrate this well.
However we believe education does not only take place in the classroom and we therefore work to ensure that we enrich the learning experience of pupils with regular curriculum related excursions outside the school as well as a good range of extra-curricular activities – sports teams, clubs etc.
We are also particularly proud of the fact that responses from pupil and parent questionnaires consistently highlight how much children enjoy school and feel it to be a safe environment. This is also recognised by Ofsted who in their 2013 inspection report identified as a strength that “pupils feel safe and secure in school and trust the staff to help them when they have concerns”. We are a small close community and value the supportive atmosphere we provide to enable your children to thrive and achieve their potential.”
