Governing Body

The Government requires that each school has a governing body. As a Voluntary Aided school our team is made up of the various stakeholders that the school serves – the church, parents, local authority, and staff. Governors are either elected or appointed, for example parent governors are elected from the parent body, and foundation governors are nominated by the church.

The governing body works in partnership with the headteacher, staff, parents and the LA to raise standards of achievement in the school, led by the Chair of Governors. The main functions of the governing body are to:

  • Provide a strategic view

  • Act as a critical friend

  • Ensure accountability

The governing body has wide-ranging responsibilities and works with the Headteacher and staff to:

  • Agree the aims and values of the school

  • Make decisions on the budget and approve the School Improvement Plan

  • Ensure that the National Curriculum is taught

  • Monitor and review the school’s progress       

  • Ensure that individual pupil’s needs are met, including special needs

  • Be involved in the recruitment of staff

  • Provide information about school for parents

  • Establish and maintain positive links with the church and the local community

To find out more about the governing body, please see the letters from the Chair of Governors to parents; copies are available in the school  office.

Committees

Children and Learning

Committee Chair:  Mr Harry King

The Children and Learning Committee oversees the educational needs of all pupils.  The committee meets each half term to plan actions and receive feedback on tasks before reporting progress to the Full Governing Body each term.  Our responsibilities include contributing to the planning and monitoring of the targets within the School Improvement Plan for this academic year. 

Duties involve reviewing the curriculum and other related school policies.  This ensures procedures are in place to comply with current government legislation in areas such as equalities and attendance.  One of the statutory responsibilities is to monitor the impact of certain targeted funding such as the Pupil Premium and PE Grant. The committee is also required to monitor and analyse school performance data in relation to pupils’ progress and attainment.   In particular this year we will look closely at English and Mathematics; Special Education Needs and Disability (SEND) provision and changes in the New Curriculum within the school as part of our monitoring role.

An important activity that the committee members particularly enjoy is visiting classrooms to engage with pupils and see the learning in action!  Last year we looked at REspect week which gave insight into how the Christian ethos is demonstrated in the school’s broad and innovative curriculum.   “Stunning Starts” and participation in the “Careers Day,” at the end of the summer term, were other focuses which allowed the committee to see how the children are motivated and engaged by their learning.
