Our Team

School Governors

The governing body meets regularly and works with the senior leadership team and the staff to decide the school's aims and policies and to oversee the efficient running of the school. The governors work in partnership with the school and the Local Authority and have particular responsibility for:

  • Setting aims and planning for the future of the school
  • Agreeing targets to raise standards of achievement
  • Ensuring the curriculum for the school promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of the pupils
  • Managing the school budget by providing the head teacher with guidance, setting priorities and budget monitoring
  • Staffing issues including appointing the head teacher and other staff and determining salaries
  • Deciding the school's policies on issues including admission and the length of the school day
  • Making sure all pupils have equal opportunities within the school and providing for pupils with special educational needs
  • Ensuring there is a high standard of maintenance of the school's premises
  • Dealing with complaints about the school

Governor's Behaviour Statement 

HJS and Shortbrook Federation Governors want Halfway pupils to be well rounded, well adjusted and caring citizens, aware of the world them, conscious both of their rights and their responsibilities in that world.  We believe children learn best when they feel safe and confident, therefore, we believe in the following principles.

  • At all times all members of our school community are expected to be the best that they can be to create a positive, safe and caring environment.
  • When wrong choices are made and poor behavior results, the key words for dealing with the behavior are fairness and consistency.
  • We all have a calm attitude, identify as many positives as possible and consistently give praise.
  • We care about our children so when necessary, appropriate support will be out in place to enable them to learn new and better ways of being.
  • Poor behavior will have consequences consistently applied.  However, this is always followed by a fresh start.  Some children may need many fresh starts, we never give up on anyone.
  • Every member of our school community should aim high, believe in themselves and each other and respect themselves and each other.
