Hove Junior School

Portland Road & Holland Road

"There is strong evidence of good systemic leadership and an aspirational culture, supporting strong outcomes for pupils and in raising standards for disadvantaged and SEND pupils" - Ofsted, February 2020


A warm welcome from the Governing Body.
We are a group of people drawn from the school community, who assist the senior staff in the general running of the school. The Governors have organised three sub-committees to deal with the range of issues for which we are responsible:
  • Leadership & Management
  • Curriculum & Outcomes
  • Safeguarding Board (joint board with West Hove Infant School)
Every sub-committee meets 1-2 times per term and the Full Governing Body meets 6 times each year.
