Welcome from the Governing Body Chair
On behalf of the Governors of the Olive School, Hackney I am pleased to welcome you to our website, and to thank you for your interest in our school.
At the Olive School, Hackney we are proud to offer a caring family atmosphere putting an emphasis on the whole child. The children at our school have a happy, safe and caring environment in which to learn. We want all our children to develop to their full potential academically and socially, so that they become responsible and caring adults in their later lives.
At the Olive School, Hackney we strive to foster a relationship between home and school that doesn’t end at the school gate; we aim to develop a good understanding between home, staff and governors for the benefit of our children.
The role of the Governing Body is to work closely with the Headteacher and staff to provide the very best education that we can for the children of our school. We are there to make sure that school’s performance is evaluated and continuously improves, to provide the strategic direction for the school, to ensure legal obligations are met and that the school keeps abreast of whatever challenges circumstances throw our way. Most of all we are there because we care for our school and want it to succeed.
I sincerely hope that your children enjoy their time at Olive School Hackney.
Chair of Governors
