Our governors

 

We are very fortunate to have a committed and dedicated team of governors. Their role is crucial in the continuing success and development of All Saints’ CE Infant and Junior Schools.

 

The law states that the purpose of governing bodies in our type of school, is to “conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school” (Section 21(2) Education Act 2002).

 

In practice this means we have six core functions:

 

  1. Strategic leadership that sets and champions vision, ethos and strategy
  2. Accountability that drives up educational standards and financial performance
  3. People with the right skills, experience, qualities and capacity
  4. Structures that reinforce clearly defined roles and responsibilities
  5. Compliance with statutory and contractual requirements
  6. Evaluation to monitor and improve the quality and impact of governance

 

More information can be found in The Governance Handbook 2019 from the DfE.

 

In early September 2019, the governors at All Saints' agreed to restructure the way that they work. This means that:

 

  • All Saints' Full Governing Body meet every half term and we no longer have sub committees. This will enable all governors to get a full, strategic view of the school's work so they can better support and challenge.
  • Governor Open Days: we have scheduled an open day every half term so our governors can visit the classes, working alongside the children, staff and senior leaders.
  • Year group governors: each year group has a link governor. This wil ensure our children's progress is closely monitored, supported and challenged.

 

Policies

Policies, set out in a clear way, form the framework within which our school operates. The monitoring of school policies is delegated to the committees; this is the time for governors to develop their strategic role, planning, monitoring and reviewing school progress. Policies are available for parents via the school office or on the policy page of this website.

Governor Hub

 

All of our governor minutes, plans, records of visits and self evaluation are stored securely on Governor Hub.
