Gillshill Primary

Message from Mr Edward Lainchbury, Chair of Governors

 

In my post as Headteacher of Gillshill from 1986-2001 I was also a governor. On retiring after 34 years of teaching, I was asked to remain as a Local Authority Governor. When Gillshill became part of the Horizon Academy Trust I was appointed for a further 4 years as a Governor for Gillshill Local Governing Body.

Following my retirement, it was natural that I wished to be part of the Gillshill “family” and so was very happy to accept the role of an LEA Governor. The school’s transition from LEA to being part of a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) has not been without its challenges.  

In addition, the roles and responsibilities of being a member of a school’s Local Governing Body are both stimulating and demanding in ensuring Gillshill maintains its “outstanding” Ofsted rating.
