Governors

Governors of St David’s Church of England Primary School

 

The Governors are a group of volunteers who commit their time and expertise to support the school. They ensure that every pupil gets the best possible education and is able to fulfil their potential both academically and socially. The school’s Christian foundation is at the heart of all they do as they serve the school family and their community.

The Board of Governors is made up of 10 Foundation Governors who are appointed by the Parochial Church Council of St David’s church, 3 Parent Governors, elected by the parents of current pupils and 2 Staff Governors, one being the Head Teacher.                                                                                   

 

They work as a team focusing on three core functions:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, strategic direction and our Christian ethos
  • holding the Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • ensuring effective financial performance.

The Full Board of Governors meets six times a year. In addition there are 3 sub-committees which also meet six times a year:

  • Finance and Audit committee, looking in depth at matters of finance, risk and compliance
  • Ethos committee, looking at the Christian distinctiveness of the school and the teaching of religious education
  • Strategy committee, responsible for setting the school’s medium and long term objectives

Governors also carry out monitoring visits, often during the school day. They meet for discussion with staff and to talk with the children. They enjoy being  present at school functions, church services, productions, open days, sports events and the many exciting activities going on at school. 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 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 converted to Academy status on 7th December 2012.  As an Academy the school operates in compliance with charity and company legislation.  The Governors are also Trustees (of the charity) and Directors (of the company). As an Academy we have Members who ensure that the Governors carry out their role effectively and in line with statutory regulations.

Amen
