Our Governors

The Governors are very important people who help to make our school the best it can be. They meet regularly to support the Leadership Team in the decision making process and to ask challenging questions about how well we are doing and how we can improve.

The Chair of Governors is Mrs Liz Maisey (e: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and our Clerk to Governors is Mrs Christine Killey. Our Governors are caring, curious and courageous people who give up their time voluntarily to support the school and we are very grateful for the contribution they make.

Governor News

With the first meetings of the year already under our belt, as a board of Governors the 2018-2019 academic year is already flying by.

During the last year, as a group of Governors, we met and discussed what we see as the Vision for our school.  It incorporates our "Caring, curious, courageous" motto but expands this further.  The reason for this vision plan is so that we as a board can focus on what we expect to see from our staff, children, parents and other stakeholders of our school.  Here is our vision.

We have been extremely fortunate to secure the funding from the Diocese for the refurbishment of the hall; lights, curtains and redecoration have all made a vast improvement to one of our major assets, it will certainly make events in the hall a little brighter!  There are exciting plans afoot for our biggest outside space (the field) too, which have started to come together.  Our PTFA work tirelessly to help us as a school to benefit all the children with the best equipment it can afford.  My heartfelt thanks go to them for the work they do.

I have the great pleasure of welcoming Liz Durning to our team, she is a retired Primary school teacher, and has agreed to be our Early Years Foundation stage link Governor.  Our link Governors can be found here.

We have a busy year ahead not just with monitoring the educational areas, but also all the events that the school has to offer.  We will be putting our Parent Questionnaire out again this November at parents evening, I look forward to seeing many of you there.

If you have any questions about what we do as a Governing body I am available in KS1 playground every morning, or if you have any questions regarding day to day school matters I will be happy to point you in the right direction.

Liz Maisey (Chair of Governors)  

Governing Committees

The Full Governing Body is responsible for:

  • Monitoring and challenging the progress of the school in achieving its priorities;
  • Setting the strategic direction, vision and ethos of the school;
  • Recruiting and performance managing the headteacher;
  • Exercising employer responisibility;
  • Ensuring the school meets its statutory responsibilities;
  • Ensuring financial probity;
  • Ensuring the premises are well managed;
  • Reporting to the school's stakeholders.

We also have two sub-committees - the Teaching and Learning Committee and the Resources Committee:

The purpose of the Teaching & Learning Committee is to monitor and improve standards of pupil performance and the teaching of the national curriculum. The committee will support and advise and challenge the Headteacher and the Governing Body on the distinctiveness of St Mary's as a church school and on communication and engagement with parents and the community.  The committee will also ensure safeguarding meets statutory requirements.

The purpose of the Resources Committee is to ensure effective use of the school's financial resources, that the premises are fit for purpose and meet relevant health and safety requirements and to provide guidance to the Headteacher on personnel issues.
