Governance

 

St. Margaret's Church of England Primary School Governing Body

 

Governors are a voluntary body of people who guide and support the strategic direction of the school. They are members of the school team and their contribution to the running of the school is highly valued.

 

School Governing Body

The instrument of government states that the governing body shall consist of:

  • 4 parent governors
  • 1 headteacher
  • 1 staff governor
  • 2 co-opted governors
  • 1 foundation governor
  • 1 church governor
  • 1 local authority governor

 

Most of our business is conducted in full Governing Body meetings. We have one additional committee which is the Pay and Personnel Committee. 

 

The role of the governing body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • Set the aims and objectives for the school
  • Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • Be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)

 

Getting in touch

Should you need to get in touch with the governors this can be done via the school office.

Financial Information

Please note that we do not have any employees with a gross annual salary of more than £100,000
