Welcome from the Chair of Governors

The role of a school governor is multi-faceted, interesting, and rewarding, but increasingly it involves significant commitment and responsibility. Essentially, the role involves being part of a like-minded group of individuals, supporting and challenging the Schools’ senior leadership team where appropriate, with the shared goal of ensuring delivery of the Schools’ strategic objectives that include curriculum development, financial management and control, safeguarding, and as a result achieve the best possible outcomes for all our pupils.

The John Rankin Schools are fortunate to be served by highly experienced, talented, committed volunteers, who make up the Governing Board. I was delighted to take over as Chair in October 2017, following in the successful footsteps of Alasdair Pearson, who we all thank for his dedication and support.

John Rankin Schools is now firmly established by Ofsted as ‘Good’, reaffirming the excellent leadership and direction taken in recent times. It is now my pleasure and honour to Chair a focused and highly talented Governing Board team through the next phase of John Rankin Schools’ continued success.

To find out more about our governors, and for copies of our governing body minutes and annual report, please see our other governor pages on this website. We can be contacted by email at governors@jrj.w-berks.sch.uk, or by phoning the school office.
