WELCOME from the

CHAIR

It is a privilege to serve as the Chair of Governors for Barkerend Primary Leadership Academy. I, along with my fellow governors, am committed to acting in the best interests of our pupils, who are at the heart of everything we do. It is our job to ensure every young person at Barkerend is provided with an excellent quality of education and rewarding learning experiences. We make sure that our pupils are safe, happy and well here, and that our STAR values are reflected in all that we do. Our aim is to make learning as enjoyable and as engaging as possible by providing leadership and character development opportunities that will help our young pupils to thrive, thereby sewing the seeds of future success.

Working with the Board of Trustees and Star Academies, we monitor the Academy’s performance in many key areas, ensuring that Barkerend employs the best teachers, appoints the best leaders, and supports every pupil to achieve their full potential. Our governors are passionate about the Academy, and keen to form collaborative relationships with parents and the local community to ensure that Barkerend’s pupils are given every opportunity to become confident, capable and compassionate young citizens.
