Governors



IanMearns

 

A big welcome to Kelvin Grove’s Governors page. My name is Ian Mearns, and I have served in the past as Chair of Governors and was delighted to be re-elected last year. I am immensely proud to serve my community and Kelvin Grove School.

I am currently the Member of Parliament for Gateshead, and before that I was a local councillor for Saltwell ward for 27 years.

As the MP for Gateshead my job is to represent the views of my constituents in Parliament where, amongst other things, I also serve on the House of Commons Education Select Committee.

The Governing Body’s responsibility lies in curriculum delivery, personnel matters, school finances and the maintenance of the school premises, as well as having an oversight of the welfare of our entire school community.

Above all our responsibility is to ensure that every child receives the best possible education in a happy and safe environment. The governors work in partnership with the Head Teacher, Deputy Head and the staff to promote the aims and values of Kelvin Grove.

I’m proud that Kelvin Grove offers an inspirational learning environment, where aspiration and self-belief are championed in order for pupils to fulfil their full potential. Working together ensure that every pupil gets the best educational start in life possible.
