Governors

What does the Governing Body do?

The Governing Body works in close partnership with Mrs Pollard and the school staff to ensure that the children get the best possible education, support, care and guidance.

We have a number of duties and responsibilities, and help to set the strategic direction of the school through agreeing aims and objectives, setting policies and targets, reviewing progress, monitoring standards and providing advice and support. We monitor the use of Pupil Premium money and the impact of this on children’s learning, and also oversee how the Sports Premium money is spent.

We approve the annual budget, and monitor it, and ensure that the school meets statutory requirements. The governors are unpaid, and take on the role on a voluntary basis.

Governor Appointments

The Governing Body is keen that the people on it reflect the school, church and village community. Our governing body includes:

  • Parent governors: elected by parents of the children at the school
  • LEA governors: appointed by the local education authority (LEA).
  • Foundation governors: appointed by Church authorities.
  • Staff governors: elected by staff at the school
  • Ex officio governors: The Headteacher and Vicar have an automatic right to be a governor at the school.
  • Co-opted governors: Governors, who, in the opinion of the governing body, have the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.

Governors may be contacted via the school office.
