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.

We are very pleased to welcome Gemma Telling as a new Parent Governor. She has a daugther in Year 1 and another daughter who is hoping to start school in September.

Governor News

Another exciting start to the 2017-2018 year at St Marys!

Back in October The Governors, PTFA, parents and children all did amazingly well to spruce up the school for this coming year, this is an event that we hope will happen a couple of times a year to keep the school looking and being its best.

A huge thank you to the fantastic group of 26 parents and 19 children who came to help with the work day on Sunday 1st October.

Thank you all so much for completing the parent questionnaires at the parents evening. We have put together an overview and we hope we can work with you and your voice to make the school an even better place!

We were fortunate to have had a full intake in September 2016, and a healthy intake for 2017. With all the housing developments happening in town our numbers are increasing across all our year groups. This benefits all our children by increasing the funding we get, which, if you follow reports in the press, is forever on the squeeze.

The Governors are in school regularly not only for meetings but also following up on the subject monitoring Mrs Woolley and the subject leads have been undertaking. We have already had two Full Governing Body meetings this year, as always well attended, and with the ongoing task of the improvement of the school at the forefront of our minds.

If you have any questions about what we do as a Governing body I am available in KS1 playground every morning, if you have any questions regarding school 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.
