OUR GOVERNORS

Halterworth School has a dedicated team of Governors who are either elected as Parent Governors, Community Governors or Local Authority Governors. They remain on the Governing Body for a period of four years and may be re-elected if no other candidates come forward. Vacancies for Governors are communicated through the school to parents and Hampshire County Council (HCC) Governor Services Team. All Governors are members of the Full Governing Body (FGB) and meet collectively once per term and twice in the summer term. Either a member on the Curriculum, Standards & Learning or Resources Committees, each governor has a clear role in supporting and holding the school to account. This ensures that Halterworth Governors ‘know their school’ and are able to challenge the school to achieve the very best outcomes for children. A number of governors have been trained to be ‘Pupil Mentors’ and support many of our children during their last year at school and help to prepare them for secondary school.

Chair of Governors

Claire Cross took over as Chair of Governors in 2015 having been a governor for over six years. Claire oversees the work of the both committees, is the link governor for Maths, SEN and Safeguarding/Safer Recruitment.


Claire has had an extensive and varied career in the finance sector. As senior management for a leading Bank she has lead large teams of managers. This involved sales delivery, operations management, call centre effectiveness, financial control and all aspects to lending. She currently supports a leading accountancy firm providing strategic services to clients and entrepreneurs.

 

Highly organised, professional, adaptable and strong analytically, Claire has a passion for efficiency and ensuring the governing body support and challenge the school leadership team constructively and effectively. Claire has particular interest in ensuring the best outcome for all children in their development, progress and attainment.

Vice Chair of Governors & Chair of Curriculum & Standards

Martin Ingoe joined the Halterworth Governors in 2012 as a Parent Governor with 2 sons having hugely benefitted from their time at Halterworth School.

 

Martin’s current roles on the Governing Committee, are as the Chair of the Curriculum Standards and Learning Committee, a link governor for PHSE, DT and acts as a mentor to Year 6 pupils.

Parent Questionnaire 

We believe it is vital to be in regular communication with parents and make sure that Governors and senior staff are available at different times of the day and are in attendance at Parent Consultations. From time to time we issue questionnaires to gauge feedback and direct our planning for the future.
