Welcome to the Governors Section

Hello and welcome to the Admiral Lord Nelson School Governor’s Section of the website.

I am Tania Osborne, Admiral Lord Nelson School’s Chair of Governors.  I have been an ALNS Parent Governor for the last four years since my son joined the school in 2014 and Chair of Governors since August 2016.  I am very proud to be connected with ALNS as I believe in its vision that every child counts and that all our children should ‘Dare to Dream and Aim to Achieve’.

The Governing body’s purpose is to ensure that ALNS has a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction going forward, to hold the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school each year and to oversee the financial performance of the school ensuring that the money is well spent.

ALNS Governing Body is made up of 15 Governors; Community and Authority, Parents, Staff and Head Teacher and we report to the Salterns Academy Trust (SAT).

The achievements of the school and the learning and development experience it provides are well known, achieving a GOOD OFSTED rating in 2017 and we remain focussed on continuous improvement and adapting to the new challenges that arise every day.

So please learn more about ALNS, our aspirations and goals. We strive to include students, teachers, parents and the wider community in which we work and live so if you have a query, an idea or want to help make ALNS better, please contact me or the Head Teacher at the school.

Your views matter!

The Governing body are always looking for volunteers in the form of new Parent Governors - please consider joining us and adding your life skills and experience to the ALNS community.
