Our Governing Body
A message from our Chair of Trustees
It gives me great pleasure as Chair of Trustees of The Perins Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) to welcome you to our Junior School, Sun Hill Junior School, on behalf of the Trustees and the Sun Hill Local Governing Body.
The Trustees and the Local Governors are involved with SHJS at every level. While focussing on the all-important safe, successful and happy education and wellbeing of our junior school pupils, our responsibilities include safeguarding, health & safety, finance, premises management and staff appointments.
Trustees and Local Governors are appointed and elected from local community, parents and staff to ensure that appropriate objectives are set and that planning for our pupils involves both high and realistic expectations. Trustees provide strategic direction for the schools in The MAT, monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of our schools, and holding school leadership to account for the quality of education achieved. Local Governors work closely with the Headteacher of the school to support and encourage all teaching and support staff and ensure that all our pupils have the learning and development opportunities they deserve.
At Sun Hill Junior School, we are fortunate to have a wonderful team of staff, ably led by Mrs Griffiths, who devote a huge amount of time and effort every day to ensuring that your children are learning and developing in a creative, caring and safe environment, inspired by the “STARS” motto.
It is a privilege to be involved in the governance of SHJS and I look forward to welcoming you to the junior part of The Perins MAT.
