Our Governing Body
The Holton le Clay Schools Governing Body would like to welcome you to Holton-le-Clay Junior School and look forward to meeting you in the near future. We feel very honoured to be governors of not just the Junior School but also Holton-le-Clay Infant School. There is a hard federation between the two schools that began in January 2010. Mrs Hunt is our Executive Headteacher. This was seen as an opportunity to further develop the success of the two schools with even closer co-operation to seek every opportunity to ensure high quality teaching and learning for all our pupils.
We have a formal role in leading and managing our two schools. We undertake that responsibility very seriously. There is a commitment from everyone at the schools to consolidate our successes and to continually look at strategies for raising our standards even further. Of course, you will play an important part in the success of the schools for possibly the next seven years whilst your child is at the Infant and Junior School. We have a high regard for the opinion of our community and appreciate the full involvement of all parents.
Our staff have our full support and we recognise that we are very fortunate in having the dedicated staff that we have. We feel that the success of any organisation but particularly a school is reliant on team work and effective communication between the team members. We pride ourselves on the belief that we are all approachable and would like to reassure you that we value you contacting us whenever you need to.

3 Core Functions of Holton le Clay Schools Governing Body
We have high expectations of governing bodies. They are the strategic leaders of our schools and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. For maintained schools this is reflected in the law, which states that the purpose of maintained school governing bodies is to ‘conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school’ . In all types of schools, governing bodies should have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:
a. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
b. Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
c. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
