The Governing Body plays a vital role at All Saints as our ‘Critical Friend’. It is made up completely of volunteers and meets once every term to discuss issues important to the running of the school.
Governors come from every walk of life and reflect the school and its community. We have parents, those appointed by the church, staff and members of the community. Each governor brings their own area of expertise and interest. This means that this knowledge can be used to help the headteacher and staff make the right choices for the school.
However, the Governing Body’s main responsibility is to hold the Headteacher and the Senior Leadership of the school to account for the academic standards in the school; to ensure that the funding allocation is properly targeted and accounted for; and to make sure that statutory policies are up-to-date and meet current regulations.
Governors come into school to join in day-to-day activities in order to develop a good understanding of what happens in school each day.
Should you wish to become a governor please contact the school to find out if there are any vacancies. You do not need any special skills or expertise – just a desire to get involved and help All Saints become an even better school.
