Bulwell St Mary's Primary and Nursery SchoolWhere Your Journey Begins


Karen Slack - Chair of Governors

Welcome to the Governors section of Bulwell St Mary’s Primary and Nursery School. We do hope that you enjoy browsing through and learning more about the life of the Governors.


Since the school joined Transform Trust on August 1st 2016 we have gone through a transformation in how we govern at BSM. We have restructured our meetings allowing us to focus on continuous school improvement so that we can secure the best possible outcomes for our children in terms of their achievement and attainment. We want to ensure that we provide quality first teaching and that our staff team are supported and invested in to ensure that our children experience quality teaching and learning that challenges, engages and nurtures learning. We want children to have the best time they possible can in our school and to have fun so that learning becomes a natural part of their lives.


Our ambition is to become an “outstanding” school whilst recognising that we are still on a journey to achieve this. To do this we need to have a clear strategic plan with clear milestones plotting our every step. The first of these is to ensure that we embed high expectations and aspirations and that our children achieve at least national expectations in terms of their attainment. We can only do this with quality first teaching in every lesson along with support from children and our parent/carer community to continue their learning at home.


Our part in achieving our ambition is to ensure that the school’s leadership is fit for purpose and that we have the right priorities in place. We want our school community to share our ambition and have a say in developing these priorities. As a Governing Body, we will regularly monitor the progress of the school on its performance and hold the leadership team to account for this performance.


We will ensure that school resources are all allocated appropriately and support the school priorities. By working together we hope that you will share in our ambition.
