Message from the acting Headteacher

We have appointed a number of new governors this term including a new Chair and Vice Chair. Our Chair of Governors, Mr Chris Lennox, began work as a secondary school teacher before moving into local authority education administration. He has experience in three local authorities. The last thirty years were spent working in Lancashire as a senior Education and Children’s Services Officer, including a substantial period as Head of Schools Human Resources. He has worked extensively with school governing bodies and headteachers providing guidance and support. Mr Graham Gorton, who has taken on the role of VC, worked as the Head of a Lancashire High School for over twenty years. He is also currently Chair of Governors at a primary school. For the last five years he has been a member of the Governor Services team of tutors for governor training. He has delivered a range of courses including Finance for Governors, Child Protection, Raise online, Inspection and the course for Chairs of Governors.
 
We plan to develop a section of the website to enable you to find out more about our Governors and to update you on how they have worked with the school to bring about improvement. I am pleased to inform you that we have at least one parent who is looking to join the Glenburn Governing Body. We still have one more vacancy. Please register your interest if you would like to get involved in moving the school forward.
 
Thank you to those parents and students who attended the consultation evening on 20th November to meet representatives of Lancashire Local Education Authority. Please remember to complete your paper or online questionnaires to make your views known about the consultation. The consultation closes on the 14th December and all questionnaires and letters need to be submitted before this time.
 
Thank you for your support
 
Karen Ingham
