Chair of Governors Welcome

Dear Parents, Carers and Visitors,

​On behalf of the Governors, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the governor's section of the Kenton Bar Primary School Website.

Our school is part of the SMART Multi-Academy Trust, which is an exempt charity, limited by guarantee. It has a formal company structure comprising of members, trustees, executive staff-CEO and Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

As a Governing Board, we are proud of our children and our warm, nurturing and dynamic school. The Governing Board work hard to support the headteacher, teaching staff and pupils with the aim of ensuring Kenton Bar Primary School is the best it can be.

​The role of the Governing Board is to ensure the school's statutory obligations are met in addition to reviewing and monitoring objectives, planning for the future, and to make sure the vision for the school is both challenging and realistic. It is the responsibility of the headteacher to run the school, however, it is the role of the Governing Board to support and strengthen the headteacher’s leadership, and to hold her accountable for the performance of children and staff.

​We feel extremely privileged to be part of the life of our successful and vibrant school.

​Allan Lacey
