Governance Information

 

As a Governing Body which serves both Water Lane and Pemberley primary academies in Harlow, we aim to ensure that our children experience a secure, safe and stimulating environment providing the full breadth of the National Curriculum – with emphasis on the acquisition of english, mathematics, science and computing skills – where all stakeholders are excited about learning and all learning activities encourage positive models of enquiry, reflection, innovation and challenge.

 

We nurture and support children of all abilities, helping each to achieve her/his potential in all aspects of learning and physical, social, emotional, moral and spiritual development. From this foundation we encourage staff to share success and equip children to become independent, creative thinkers and learners for life and to develop the resilience to face the challenges of an ever-changing world.

 

We recognise and value the diversity of our school family and the uniqueness of each of its members. We ensure excellence in teaching and learning through teamwork, support, collaboration and effective leadership.

 

We promote inclusion, creativity and enthusiasm. We promote British values – including tolerance, cooperation, trust and respect – within the school and the wider community.

Water Lane Primary Academy has a long, rich history and we actively encourage community involvement wherever possible. We achieve the best we can for our children by using the strength of partnership working with parents and others.

 

Governors keep the vision of the school at the heart of all that we do, including  when setting and accepting school policies and the School Development Plan.

 

Our Local Governing Body at Water Lane and Pemberley consists of individual volunteers who collectively help to oversee the strategic direction and management of the two Reach2 schools.

 

Governing a school means giving much time, energy and enthusiasm in supporting our school and helping to shape the stimulating environment it is today.

Governing Body Pecuniary Interests

The school recognises the requirement of all school governors to declare a pecuniary interest - direct or indirect.

 

All governors complete a pecuniary/business interest declaration at the start of the academic year and must declare a pecuniary interest if circumstances in this regard change during the course of the academic year.

 

At present we have no governors who have any pecuniary /business interests.
