Oakfield Junior

Governors

Governors at Oakfield take our responsibilities very seriously. We are involved in supporting the Headteacher and the rest of the school to deliver the best possible education and experience to the children. We manage the budget for salaries, running costs, maintenance and equipment. We are involved in developing policies and procedures, and key staff appointments. The most important role we have is monitoring the school's progress, working with the Head and the staff to set annual targets.

We are delighted by the continued improvement in school standards and attainment over the past few years, and we are very proud of the hard work of our children and staff in achieving these and building on these. We are confident this will be a continuing process.

We welcome feedback and involvement by parents. I am always pleased to hear from you. For general enquiries about the school please email parent@oakfield.surrey.sch.uk. If you wish to contact me directly, chairofgovernors@oakfield.surrey.sch.uk, I will do my best to get back to you as soon possible.

I hope our website will give you some indication that Oakfield is a very happy and thriving school. Nothing beats walking through the door and experiencing the buzz of the school in action.  However I believe that our website reflects that feeling and the commitment and passion we all share in making Oakfield Junior an excellent school.

Our Governing Body was reconstituted in July 2017, the terms of office are four years from this date.

If you would like to find out more about becoming a Governor please contact the school.
