Governors

Our Governing Body consists of 12 people, and has been constituted to represent a cross-section of the community.  They each share a commitment to oversee the development of the school, both materially and academically, whilst retaining all that is best of traditional village school life. In addition to the Rector and the Foundation Governors (appointed by the Parochial Church Council), there is an elected representative of the staff as well as two elected parents, selected representatives for the Diocese and the County Council, and finally the Headteacher who all bring together a wide range of expertise, skills, knowledge and enthusiasm.

 

 

The Governing Body is responsible for the development and successful implementation of the School Development Plan, which includes a shared vision for the school and our strategic planning for the short and medium term.  In addition, they oversee immediate issues such as the management of the school expenditure, recruitment, the obligations of the National Curriculum and the upkeep of the school buildings and grounds. However, the day-to-day running of the school is the responsibility of our Headteacher and her staff.

 

The Governing Body meets two or three times a term to consider a wide range of issues and to discuss and to authorise the recommendations of various sub-committees.

 

 

Parents are encouraged to discuss any general concerns, to offer suggestions and to discuss matters of personal interest with any of the currently serving Governors.  All academic queries and those relating to individual behaviour should first be discussed with the class teacher.
