Governors

Welcome to our Governors Section.

We are a delegated governing committee and are the strategic leaders of our school. We have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education. This is reflected in the law, which states that the purpose of maintained school governing bodies is to ‘conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school’.

Our governors have a strong focus on ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction, and holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.

 

Effective governance is based on six key features:

Strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy.

Accountability that drives up educational standards and financial performance.

People with the right skills, experience, qualities and capacity.

Structures that reinforce clearly defined roles and responsibilities.

Compliance with statutory and contractual requirements.

Evaluation to monitor and improve the quality and impact of governance

Governance Handbook 2017

The chair of governors is Mrs Tracy Lowe who can be contacted via the school office.

The different categories of governors on our governing body are:

Parent Governors have a child in school at the time of their election, and are elected by the parents with children at the school.

Staff Governors are a member of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues.

Co-opted Governors are appointed on to the governing body by the other members because they come from a specialist group, such as the business community or because they possess a particular skill which can contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.

Picture 1 Tracy Lowe - I am a local Family Solicitor with my own practice in Worcester which specialises in family law. I am married with one son and 3 step sons, who have been in my life for a very long time. I am Chairman of my Community Association and a local Parish councillor and I am involved in charity events and organising events which raise money whilst having fun at the same time. I believe that children are at the heart of every community and I am privileged to be a governor of Dines Green Community Academy. Education provides children with many windows of opportunity as they grow up. For me, growing up, school was a very happy time of my life. I have worked with children over many years. I believe that I am firm but fair person, decisive and compassionate. I enjoy life with my husband and family, the theatre, music, dancing and having fun.
Picture 2 Sharon Tilki - I am married with one daughter in KS2 and a former pupil of Dines Green School. As a self-employed dance teacher I have worked in TV and theatre, schools and colleges and trained competition dancers as well as community classes. I have choreographed and instructed the winners of Strictly Worcestershire for the past 3 years. I also have various other business ventures in retail, property and events. In 2016 I won the One Woman Business Category in Wonderful Worcestershire Women Awards. I am determined and considered to have a measured but clever approach to business. These varying people and business skills I bring to my role as a Governor. I am passionate about our school and the community and continually strive for the best education and opportunities for our children, staff and school as a whole.
Picture 3 Di Brown - Originally from Birmingham, I came to Worcester to train as a teacher. After qualifying I settled in Worcestershire. I taught in a number of high schools in the county before having my family. When I returned to teaching I spent the next 23 years of my career teaching in Local Authority learning support teams. 20 of these years were spent as the designated support teacher for Dines Green Primary School, and throughout these years I developed a close relationship with the school. I continue to have an interest in SEN and since my retirement I voluntarily support at Worcester Dyslexia Parents Support Group.
