Our Local Governing Committee works over both Broadmere and New Monument Primary Academies, playing a key role in shaping the strategic direction of the schools and challenging the school leaders to ensure that every child receives a good education.  Bourne Education Trust delegates the majority of powers and responsibilities to the local governing committee under the BET Scheme of Delegation.
New Monument is a calm, happy school where there is a strong nurturing ethos with a restorative approach to dealing with issues.  The values taught have been agreed by children, staff and governors and are referred to during the school day within the school.  The strong focus on academic progress and achievement is balanced by the provision of a creative curriculum along with sporting and social learning. 
School governors make collective decisions, the main aim of which is to support the work of the headteacher and staff as they strive to raise educational standards and performance.  Governors make decisions on how the school is and will be run but do not get involved in the day-to-day running of the school - this is the work of the headteacher, leadership team and the staff.
The 3 key functions of governance are:
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
  • overseeing the financial performance of the school, ensuring money is well spent.
Getting in touch:
Should you wish to contact the Local Governing Committee, you can do so directly via the school (please address your letter to the Chair of Governors) or via the governors@broadmere.surrey.sch.uk email address.  All written communications can be sent to our Chair of governors via the clerk.
Our clerk to the governors is Karen Masella, clerk@broadmere.surrey.sch.uk
Local Governing Meetings are held at the school.  At the end of each meeting governors consider:  What evidence is there from this meeting that we are being the best governors we can be for the children at Broadmere and New Monument schools?
If you think you would be interested in becoming a school governor, please contact us either by e-mail or post.
