‘Learning together, Playing together, Praying together’
All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a 'critical friend': to support, to challenge, to ask questions, ultimately to represent the school community.
The Governing Body works in close partnership with the headteacher, staff and the local authority. Whilst the headteacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.
Who are we?
The Governing Body now consists of:
The standard term of office for a governor is four years. The chair and vice-chair are elected annually at the first meeting of the academic year.
The Chair of Governors is Mr Paul McCay, who can be contacted via the school office or directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Governing Body meets at least three times each year with committee meetings during the year.
All other aspects of school life which require governance are arranged through the Chair.
The Governing Body for academic year 2018/2019 consist of:
Mr Paul McCay: Chair of governors (Foundation governor)
Miss Annette Dews: Vice Chair of governors (Foundation governor)
