Our Governors

The Governing Board has an essential role in ensuring that the its obligations to meet National Standards by providing a broad and balanced curriculum to all pupils, as well as operating within the financial, legal and health and safety expectations of the Department of Education.

 

They consist of a cross section of representatives of those who have an interest in the correct operation of a school to ensure that all pupils reach their potential. Each Governing Board membership therefore comprises representatives from the staff, parents, community and Local Authority.  As both schools within our Federation are Voluntary Controlled, our Governing Board also has Foundation Governors.

This is the membership of the Governing Board for the Tas Valley Church Schools Federation:

Currently, our Governors meets as a Full Governing Board three times a year.  Three committees are in operation: School Effectiveness, Ethos and Resources.

 

Governors also act as a ‘critical friend’ of the school by offering advice and challenge to ensure the statutory functions of the school are met.

 

If parents have any problems or queries that they feel the Governing Board may be able to help with, they are welcome to contact any of the members listed above.  Contact details are available from the School Office.

 

Our Chair of Governors, Diane Perry-Yates, can be contacted via the School Office.
