The Deanwell School Board is made up of 7 members, this includes Pam Quirke the Principal, Kylie Taplin as the teacher representative and 5 Parents – Jessica Smith, Sean Barnham, Craig Wells, Fiona Sutton and Kayla Kilgour.
The Board does a number of things to keep Deanwell School operating properly and provide a great place for our tamariki to learn, some of these things include:
- Setting goals for the school and then make sure we meet those goals, these goals are about the kid’s learning and achievement and also about other things like making sure the buildings and school grounds are safe and fun to use.
- Making sure that there are policies in place that help the school make decisions.
- Employing the principal who then employs all the other staff. The Board is responsible for making sure Deanwell School is a supportive and safe place for people to work.
- Monitoring the finances and sets budgets for the school to follow.
The Board sets the school Strategic Plan and produces an annual plan to support the achievement of this plan. If you want to view the Strategic Plan, it can be seen in your child’s report.
For us to achieve the best for Deanwell School’s students we need to engage with whānau, build a better connection with you all, and share information with you by having regular updates on Board activities in the Deanwell School Newsletter or on the website.
