The Hermitage School

Inspire, Learn, Achieve

Local Governing Committee

We have a joint Local Governing Committee with The Oaktree School.

The Local Governing Committee is committed to ensuring that each child at The Hermitage School receives the best possible education.  The school's mission statement is ‘Inspiring Everyone to Learn’, and as a Local Governing Committee, our aim is to strategically support the school's leadership team to motivate and inspire children, build and develop their individual strengths and talents, enable them to realise and achieve their potential and to ensure every child is valued and achievements are celebrated.

As a Governing Committee, we are here to work alongside the Head Teacher and the staff sharing their vision and values for The Hermitage School, ensuring that we support and challenge appropriately, whilst always maintaining good working relationships. The Governing Committee at The Hermitage School makes a difference to the quality of education for the children. We achieve this through working in partnership with the Senior Leadership Team to:

  • Set the strategic directions for the school

  • Ensure the school has and is following agreed policy, including meeting statutory requirements

  • Effectively monitor the work of the school in order to ensure that actions are having a positive and measurable impact and to inform future direction
