Hove Park governing body

Welcome from the Co-Chairs of Governors

On behalf of the Governing Body, we are delighted to welcome you to Hove Park School – a true community school where ‘together we achieve’.

The Governors at Hove Park are a group of committed and passionate volunteers that support and challenge the school to ensure all students can achieve the best possible educational outcomes.

Our Governing Body encompasses a variety of skills, backgrounds and experiences, together with a diversity of view in order to carry out our key responsibilities.

Our role is to be the strategic leaders of the school and we play a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education within a safe, stimulating and highly positive environment.

To ensure effective governance we focus on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

You can read more about how governors work to lead schools effectively on the National Governance Association’s website.

At Hove Park, we recognise the key role that the whole community – particularly parents and carers – play in developing a successful school where students learn and develop to their full potential. We work collaboratively with the local authority as well as partner secondary and primary schools and their governors across Brighton & Hove.

We welcome any questions, queries or ideas that will help Hove Park improve the educational experience for its fantastic students – please don’t hesitate to contact us.
