School Governing Body

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

  • 2 parent governors
  • 1 local authority governor
  • 1 staff governor
  • 1 headtecaher

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

I volunteered to become a governor at All Saints Academy as I wanted to be involved in my son’s education and was really keen to help the school achieve some of its aims, specifically around the learning and development of children.
I am currently a Senior Project Manager for a software company and I hope to bring some of my attention to detail to the role of governor and hope to support the school in being a “critical” and “supportive eye”.
Finally I want to contribute to my local community more and hope I can do this by being part of the governing body.

I am really pleased to be part of the Governing body to offer my support to the future development of the school.  I applied to be a Governor as I am looking forward to being part of my son’s school experience as he starts school in 2019. I hope to transfer some of my experience from senior communications and marketing roles within the training and further education sector. I’ve been involved in opening new specialist schools where I’ve had exposure to the strategic and educational elements of school life that I will use to benefit our school. I hope this will help to continue shaping the best learning experience for our children and the best working environment for our staff.
