Welcome from the Governing Body.

On behalf of the Governing Body, welcome to Longlevens Junior School. 

We are thrilled you have chosen our school as your choice of Junior School. LJS is a successful and happy place, where everyone is an active learner and feels safe. The atmosphere is positive, encouraging and stimulating; we balance academic focus with broader social, physical and creative activity.

Our Governing Body is made up of people, all actively dedicated to ensuring excellent outcomes for the children that attend LJS.  The Governing Body is made up from parents, people from the community and staff at the school. Governors make important decisions on how the school is and will be run, but are not involved in the day to day operational business of the school – this is the work of the leadership team and the staff. To give you a brief overview the three core strategic functions of the Governing Body are as follows:

• To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction, to set out the vision for the school and its broad ambitions. 
 
• To hold the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school, its pupils and staff. 
 
• To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.

If you would like to get in touch with the governors at any time please do so through school reception, via the clerk, Karen Matthews, at ctog@longlevens-jun.gloucs.sch.uk or contact me directly at chair@longlevens-jun.gloucs.sch.ukWe have no doubt that you and your child will begin a wonderful journey when you start with us in September and we look forward to working with you.
