Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

 

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

On behalf of the Governors, I would like to welcome you to the St Mary's C of E Primary School web site.

 

At St Mary's the Full Governing Board comprises nine places.  These are made up of members from different catagories:

 

Two Staff Governors (including the Headteacher)
Two Parent Governors
Two Foundation (Church Appointed) Governors (including Ex-Officio)
Two Co-opted Governors
One Local Authority Governor

 

For 2020/21 the Governing Body have chosen to meet as a Full Governing Body for all meetings. 

 

As Governors, we believe that it is our purpose to work alongside the school staff to produce the ideal environment to enable the pupils to achieve their full potential. We believe the most important role of the school is to produce well rounded individuals who are entirely prepared to go onto the next stage of their education.

 

We would like to assure you that the Governing Body will do everything possible to help each and every pupil develop.
