Welcome from the Chair of The Local Governing Body

It is my pleasure, on behalf of the Local Governing Body, to welcome you to New Horizons Seaside Primary, founding school of the New Horizons Academy Trust. Please take a few minutes to look through our website to see the range of opportunities that all Seaside pupils can enjoy.


As a body of 12 Local Governors, it is our responsibility to ensure that the teaching and learning at Seaside continues to be “Outstanding”, the judgment of the Ofsted inspection, in July 2015. We have a wide range of experience and expertise, but, collectively, we aim to provide the best opportunities for all of our children, embraced in our motto “Everybody Matters, Everybody Succeeds”.


Remit of the Local Governing Body


The role of the Local Governors is to oversee the management of the school.  The members of the Local Governing Body are drawn from parents and the wider community.  The skills and expertise of the individuals are used to the full in their roles within the Local Governing Body. The Local Governing Body meets once each half-term.


We pride ourselves in how well we know our school, we like to involve ourselves in Seaside life and, if visiting the school, you may see Local Governors in classrooms; talking with children; meeting with staff; or helping on school trips.  This involvement enriches our understanding and helps us make the decisions we need to make to support the school in its mission to be the best it can be.


We are gratified that Seaside children develop into happy and confident individuals; with lively and enquiring minds; having a secure and developing understanding of the world they live in.


In visiting this website, I hope you will have seen the dedicated team at Seaside who enable the children to have a happy and fulfilling time whilst with us. I join Lee Murley in welcoming you to visit us to see for yourselves.
