Welcome from the Governing Body.
We work with the Senior Management Team in a friendly, supportive, yet challenging role.
Foundation Governors are appointed by the Diocese to ensure that the schools Christian ethos and values are upheld.
Parent Governors are appointed by the parents as a result of a nomination and election process.
Community Governors are, as their name suggest, volunteer from the local community.
LA Governors are appointed by the Local Authority.
At the moment we have a full complement of 15 Governors. For information about our committees and dates of meetings please see our school office.
No matter which category we fall into our aim is to maintain and raise the already high standards of teaching and learning in the school.
One of our main activities this academic year has been monitoring the progress of Year Groups of pupils and Curriculum subjects. This has involved extensive dialogue with teachers, exchanging ideas and information.
Each Governor has been assigned to a Year Group and will follow the progress of those children each term through to the end of Year 6. Parent Governors do not monitor their children’s Year Group. Similarly each Governor has been given a subject to monitor and we meet termly with the subject leader(s) to talk about how it is taught, what resources are needed and how to further enhance delivery of the Curriculum, making it enjoyable and creative.
We have enjoyed our meetings with teachers and children and are grateful to them for helping us to fulfil our role.
Governors have also accompanied children on school visits.
We also actively support the Friends of School in their fund raising activities and some of us attend their monthly meetings whenever we can. The Chair of Governors is a member of the Friends of School Committee.
