Meet the Governors

 

Monthly Prayer Meeting

The first school prayer meeting of the new academic year

will be held on Thursday 12th October 2017

from 9 - 9.30am in the church centre.  All welcome.

---------------------------------------------------

The Governors of St David’s C of E Primary School (Trustees and Members) are a committed group of parents, staff and members of the community.  They work as a team to oversee the running of the school and foster its aims.  The Governing Body acts as critical friend to the school, by providing support and constructive challenge, to ensure high standards of teaching and learning are achieved.  Foundation governors (members), who are appointed by St David’s Church PCC, are entrusted to maintain and develop the school’s distinctive Christian character.
 
The Headteacher is responsible for the day to day running of the school, whilst the governors monitor and evaluate progress and provide strategic planning and management.  The Full Governing Body meets about four times a year.  However, smaller committees meet more regularly, looking in greater depth at matters of finance (Finance & Audit), property and personnel (Resources), the curriculum (Learning and Development) and Christian distinctiveness (Ethos).  As a church school the governors are responsible for employing all staff.  They receive training and support from the Local Authority and the Diocese to help them fulfill their role effectively.

Governors are always happy to be contacted to hear the views of parents and children.  Some can be found each day in the school playground collecting their children or they can be contacted via the school office or the clerk to the governors.  Email:   governors@st-davids.gloucs.sch.uk

        St David's School Prayer      

Dear Lord

Our school is a special place where we learn and play together.  

Help us to listen carefully, work hard and try our best in everything we do.  

May we make the most of every opportunity that comes our way.  

Help us to value and care for each other, today and always.

Amen
