On a visit to St Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary and Nursery School in Ramsgate last Friday, South Thanet MP, Craig Mackinlay, presented the School’s very proud governors with a Governor Quality Mark award.
Developed in 2006, the award of Governor Mark is a national award in England to show that school governing bodies are ‘outstanding’ in their governorship of a school.
Achievement of the award has a validity of three years, after which re-assessment will be required, and allows the school to display the GLM (Governance, Leadership and Management) Governor Mark logo.
The 12 members of the governing team were delighted that all their hard work has been recognised nationally.
Craig Mackinlay MP commented:
“I was delighted to present the governors with their Quality Mark award after being invited to bestow the honour by St Ethelbert’s Headteacher, John Letts.
“School governors work tirelessly giving up enormous amounts of their free time for no pay to ensure that their school’s pupils receive the best education. St Ethelbert’s, for instance, enjoys a variety of expertise from their governors ranging from special educational needs, English as an additional language to finance and community engagement.
“The School is a credit to Thanet’s educational map and I congratulate the governors on their thoroughly well-deserved award.”
