St Peters’s Governing Body
The Governing Body at St Peter’s Primary School has a vital role to play in making sure that every child gets the best possible education.
We achieve this by:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
The full governing body meets six times every year (one meeting every-half term). In addition to this, pairs of governors (monitoring pairs) visit the school throughout the school year in order to monitor the school’s progress towards achieving the strategic goals, identified through the school development plan.
As a governing body, we believe in working in close partnership with the school, in order to continually improve the quality of learning opportunities for each child. We all have different backgrounds which enable us to bring a great variety of skills to the governing body and have a shared commitment to the pupils and staff of the school. We maintain an open and friendly atmosphere at our meetings, where all ideas are welcome and are often the subject of lengthy discussions.
If you have any queries or concerns please speak to any member of the governing body or contact the Clerk via the school office, who can pass on any correspondence. Copies of the Governing Body meeting minutes can also be obtained, upon request, from the Clerk to the governing body.
Each academic year, Governor details are updated to reflect their roles and responsibilities.
