Our Governing Body is responsible for ensuring that our School conforms with the legal guidelines laid down by Parliament and the Local Education Authority (LEA).
Together with the professionals in school we share responsibility for:
The school’s standards
Its value for money
Its proper management
Its fairness in dealing with its staff and pupils
Its communication with parents and the public
Our responsibility is for overall policy. The day-to-day business of organising children’s learning and of managing time, space, staff and resources is for the professional team led by the headteacher.
Individual governors have no power; the authority we have comes from working together as a governing body. With the professional staff at our school we try to provide the best possible education for all the children.
The governing body must ensure that in delivering its responsibilities, it promotes and safeguards the welfare of children.
The Governors act through a series of committees. Minutes of their meetings are available for all to read. Please ask in the school office. Additionally the Governors produce an Annual Report for Parents.
The Chair of the Governing Body, can be contacted via the School.
‘As a governing body, we are committed to ensuring that our status as a church school is recognised as making a real difference to the way the school is run. We pride ourselves that the school community is built on Christian values and principles such as love and forgiveness. There is a strong and enduring relationship with the Rector and God’s people at St. Mary’s Church and other local Christian churches.’
