Our Governing Body

On behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to warmly welcome you to Bure Park Primary School. We are a large, inclusive and popular school serving the Bure Park area of Bicester and the surrounding local community. As Governors we are committed, passionate people who wish to support and challenge our school to be the best that it can be. As a body, we are made up of parents, staff, representatives from the Local Authority and members of the community. We are organised in committees and work closely with the Head Teacher to ensure that all children at our school are given access to the very best teaching, are offered exceptional learning opportunities and above all, enjoy coming to a very happy, respectful, creative and safe environment.

Our role at the school is that of a ‘critical friend’ – we support the Head Teacher and the staff in developing the very best opportunities for our children, and help keep everything in good working order, continually challenging ourselves to improve, and ensure that every child can reach their potential as a unique individual.

Should you wish to talk to me for any reason, I can be contacted through the school office.

Alastair Deacon

Chair of Governors

The Role of the Governing Body

The governors' main responsibilities are to establish the aims and policies of the school; to advise on spending the school's budget; to determine the school's curriculum policy and make sure that the National Curriculum and Religious Education are provided; select the Headteacher; appoint, promote and support staff; provide outside advice and act as a link between the local community and the school.
They meet regularly, both as a whole body and in subcommittees, and they aim to establish a good relationship with both children and staff by visiting the school and taking a genuine interest in its everyday life and activities, thus becoming involved on a personal basis and always working for the best interest of the children. 

All Governors regularly declare any business or financial interests. These documents are held by the Clerk to the Governors.
