Governing Body

 

WHAT DO THE GOVERNORS DO?

 

The governors at St. Saviour’s C.E. Primary School support our school in a voluntary capacity to ensure that it delivers the highest quality of educational provision for our children. The Head Teacher is responsible for the overall management of the school. The governing body holds the Head Teacher to account, makes sure the school’s money is well spent and together with the Head Teacher sets the school's aims and agrees its policies.

The full governing body meets once every half-term to assess the school’s performance against its aims, question and challenge the Head Teacher and agree plans for the future.

There are also a number of governor committees that meet regularly, where particular topics such as building improvements, the curriculum, academic results, resources, and the school’s relationship with pupils, parents and the local community are discussed in detail.

Many governors take responsibility for an aspect of school life, for example,   Safeguarding and Special Educational Needs. Governors visit the school regularly to speak with the member of staff responsible for their area and see classes in action.

Governors welcome speaking with parents, staff members and anyone else involved in the school, as this is crucial to their work. However, any specific questions, issues or concerns should be raised directly with the head teacher.

The role of a Governing Body is to support, monitor and challenge the School at a strategic level. The duties are 3-fold:  to set strategic direction, ensure accountability and evaluate and monitor performance.

 

A Governing Body has to legally meet three times a year, but the Governing Body of St. Saviours meets on average six times a year, which gives an indication of the dedication of both Governors and the Senior Management Team. In addition, various Committees meet to carry out their specific roles and responsibilities.

 

The Governors value and welcome the co-operation of parents in seeking to achieve the aims and objectives of the school. Minutes of the meetings are available for parents and can be found in the Governing Body Minutes Folder in the School Administrative Office.
