Chair: Mrs Susan Jarvis
The Governing Body has three core strategic functions:
a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
b. Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff; and
c. Overseeing the financial management of the schools and making its money is well spent.
To meet these statutory obligations, the Governors at MPPS work together closely as a team. We are here to support the school, the pupils, their parents and the local community. We all live in Malvern, and many of us have either children or grandchildren at the school. You will often find us in the playground and at school events, so please come and say 'Hello'.
While we hope it will never be necessary, should you as a parent or carer ever wish to make a complaint about the school, please be assured that it will be taken very seriously and will be investigated promptly. Every effort is made to resolve complaints as soon as possible. The Complaints Procedure can be found on the school website and the Governing Body wishes to stress the importance of following it. This will ensure the objectivity and independence of the Governing Body if at a later date it is necessary for them to become involved in resolving the complaint.
