Foundation stage is a great place to be introduced to the school environment - the space is large enough to be exploratory and exciting and small enough to be safe and well supervised.

Message from Chair of Governors

I am really delighted to be invited to be the Chair of Governors. As someone who has been living in this part of London for twenty years and has three children at different stages within Invicta, I am passionate about children receiving the best education available.

The Governing Body are fully committed to Invicta being a fantastic place for our children to learn and grow in a safe and stimulating environment.

Invicta Primary School Governors

Invicta Governing Body meets once per half term.

The first meeting is clerked by a representative from the Local Authority. Much of the detailed work happens at our unclerked meeting in the second half of every term. Where we discuss the progress of the school in terms of:

  • Finance, Personnel & Premises
  • Curriculum, Learning & Achievement

It is important that Governors get to know the school well by visiting it, supporting events and by undertaking the training provided by the Governor Services Team.

The role of the governors includes:

  • setting the school's aims and policies
  • improving standards of teaching and achievement
  • setting the school's budget plan and monitoring expenditure
  • interviewing and appointing teachers and support staff
  • acting as a link between the local community and the school
  • dealing with complaints about the school
  • drawing up an action plan after an inspection, and monitoring the success of the plan

School governors play a vital part in the success of schools. They are volunteers, who work with the headteacher and the Council to improve standards in their school.
