My name is Bob Wake and I am the current chair of Governors at The James Cambell Primary School. I have been involved with the school for over 35 years and live within a 5 minute walk from the school. I can be contacted via the school at any time. 


The role of The Governing Body is to work with the Head Teacher and be a critical friend, to help drive improvements in the teaching and learning within the school. 


We also have the following responsibilities: 



  • To manage the school's finances ensuring "value for money" on expenditure
  • Effectively use the pupil premium monies to boost pupil progress.



  • Setting of targets for pupil achievement 
  • Improving the level of teaching 
  • Health, Safety & The Environment within the school 
  • Staff review on performance and pay

The governing body is made up of local representatives, parents & community governors who ensure that any decisions made are in the best interest of all the pupils within the school.
