Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

The Governing Body of Upton Infant School would like to welcome all the users of this website. On this page, we aim to provide you with information and details of the tasks we undertake towards the successful running of the school. Hamwic Education Trust also has its own governance structure. Please click here for more information.

We hope that the information provided throughout this website will provide evidence of how much we all believe and value not only academic achievement, but also how much the children are encouraged to achieve their potential, as well as demonstrating how happy, safe and secure they feel in their learning environment. The Governors are proud to be a proactive part of a very successful and dedicated team. There are two sub committees with two clear roles and the main governing body committee. The learning committee's function is to oversee the curriculum, progress and attainment of children and assessment procedures. The finance and premises committee's responsibilities are budget, human resources, health and safety and buildings. Each 

The Governing Body is always keen to meet and hear the views of both parents and pupils, and can be contacted via the governors' email address (governors@uptoninf.dorset.sch.uk) . Alternatively, contact details for the Chair and Vice Chair can be found at the bottom of each school newsletter. Minutes for each meeting are held in school should anyone wish to read them.

The Governors are actively involved in school life in many ways from appointing staff, overseeing budgetary expenditure and ensuring a safe environment for staff and children.
