Our Governing Board

A warm welcome to Purley Oaks from the School Governing Board.

The school governors welcome all new parents and carers and thank you for entrusting your child to our care. We welcome all new pupils and hope they will settle in quickly and be very happy at Purley Oaks.

Our school ethos is for everyone to work together to make Purley Oaks a school in which everyone takes pride.

We do our best to communicate with you effectively and to ensure that you are informed of ways in which you can support and get involved in the life of the school. We value your views and will always listen to any concerns. Parents and carers have a voice through the Governing Board and the children through their School Council.

The Governing Board is made up of an elected parent/carer, an elected staff member and representatives from the local authority and the local community. We meet six times each school year to discuss how to spend the school’s funding wisely, how to staff the school and what needs doing to maintain and improve the facilities and premises. Most importantly, we discuss teaching and learning policies with the Headteacher and staff, monitor pupil progress and achievement and hold the school to account for the standards it achieves.

Our Chair of Governors is Mrs Janice Kennard.

The best way to contact the Governing Board is by email at: governors@purleyoaks.croydon.sch.uk

Thank you again for choosing Purley Oaks and our best wishes for a happy and successful partnership.
