Governor CVs April 2020

So what does this mean?

The Governing Body has responsibility for ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is spent effectively.

How is this done at St Peter’s?

The Governing Body meets once a term in full but most of its work is carried out at the sub-committees. The Teaching & Learning, Finance, Inclusion and Faith committees also meet at least once a term with additional meetings held as required.

Governors at St Peter’s also do much more than this; they regularly visit school bringing with them a whole host of skills and experience.
