Governing Body

The work of the Governing Body in a school covers three core functions:

  • Ensuring that the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school are clearly defined
  • Ensuring that the headteacher carries out his/her responsibilities for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Ensuring that the school’s financial resources are used properly and effectively

These key functions apply to all different kinds of schools.  The reality for All Saints’ is that the governors work in partnership with the headteacher and staff to provide the best possible education they can for the children who attend our school. All the governors take their responsibilities very seriously and want to do all they can to help make All Saints’ the best school it can be.

Meetings of the Governing Body

Governor Training and Development

Class Governor Friends

Steering Committee

Together with the headteacher, this committee consists of the Chair, Vice Chair, Training and Development Governor and the Chairs of any of the other committees.  It meets at the beginning of each term to discuss and agree the priorities for the term and to delegate activities for each of the committees to deal with.

Curriculum Committee

This committee looks at issues of teaching and learning and receives regular reports on the progress and achievement of the children.  Any changes to the curriculum which is offered to the children are considered at these meetings and the performance of the school in relation to national standards is explored and discussed. 

Resources Committee

This committee regularly reviews the school’s budget situation and considers if money is being spent in the most efficient way possible.  Issues relating to the school building and its fabric are constantly discussed in order to ensure that staff and children are provided with an environment which is safe and welcoming.

Christian Ethos Committee

All Saints’ is a church school and receives regular church school inspections, in addition to the OfSTED inspections which take place in all schools.  This committee looks at how the Christian distinctiveness of the school can be maintained and developed, with a particular focus on Collective Worship and Religious Education.
