Governors

The Governing Body of Falcons Primary School is responsible for setting the strategic direction of the school, monitoring progress and holding the Headteacher and senior leadership team to account.

The Governing Body consists of Governors appointed by the Akaal Education Trust Members as well as Parent Governors elected from amongst the parents of children at the school and a Staff Governor elected from amongst the staff at the school.  The Governing Body operates Sub Committees and Task Groups as necessary and may co-opt individuals with specific skills, experiences or knowledge to attend specific meetings.

The Governing Body is also known as the Board of Directors and Trustees of the school and is accountable to the trust members as well as to the Department for Education, Education Funding Agency and regulatory bodies including OFSTED.

The Governing Body is guided by various legislation that applies to all schools as well as requirements specific to this school contained in the Articles of Association and the Funding Agreement agreed by the Secretary of State.

Governors can be contacted via the school office.

Inderjit Panesar Community Governor - Chair of Governors

Vi Dempster -  Community Governor
Born and educated in Scotland, I came to Leicester in 1974 and worked for over 20 years as a Children’s social worker. I have been a school governor since 1997 and a City Councillor since 2005.

Peter Chilvers - Community Governor
Pete has been the Chief Executive of the SDSA since 2008 and was previously a headteacher, working in primary schools in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire. The trademark of the SDSA’s approach is a conviction that the solutions to most improvement challenges are to be found in schools close to the ‘front line’. The SDSA belief is that the system needs facilities that enable effective practice to be shared. Pete is therefore proud that the SDSA has developed a role as a facilitative organisation, rarely standing up at the front as the ‘expert’ but almost always quietly supporting colleagues in well-organised activities to collaborate around a clearly articulated common purpose to address priority needs.
