Achieving Excellence Together Rhagori Gyda'n Gilydd

Our Governors

The Governing Body of Haverfordwest High VC School is recruited from the local community, parents, staff and the local authority and are all highly valued for the skills, experience and objectivity that they bring to the decision-making process of the school. All of our Governors are people who have an interest in the role of school and wish to make a positive contribution to the effective day-to-day running and the educational achievements of the children. 

Part of their strategic role is to monitor the progress and performance of the school in order to raise standards and achieve excellence. 

The Governing Body work in partnership with the Head Teacher, Local Authority and local community to help provide the best possible education.

We are committed to:

    • Achieving outstanding educational outcomes

    • High expectations to ensure children realise their potential

    • Continuous improvement, growing and developing, leading in collaboration opportunities, sharing and benefiting from best practice and wider resources

    • High emphasis on excellent pastoral care, emotional well being, inclusiveness, health of children and support for families

Governors are expected to play three key roles:

Working Strategically

Establishing the vision, mission and values of the school, reviewing the strategic agenda of the school, ensuring that plans support the overall vision, setting ambitious targets and driving improvement on all fronts.

Acting as a Critical Friend

Challenging the leadership team in improving teaching and learning, and supporting the development of a high quality curriculum to raise the standards of pupil achievement. Supporting the Head Teacher and staff whilst building on their expectations to ensure that the best possible outcomes for children are achieved.

Ensuring Accountability

Governors answer for their decisions and the school's performance to key stakeholders - parents, carers and teachers. We monitor classroom activity and receive information from the Head Teacher and Leadership Team that helps us decide what is working well and where further improvement is necessary.
