St Paul's Governors

The Governors are responsible for the conduct of the school, and promote high standards of educational achievement. We do not manage the school on a day to day basis but we provide the framework in which the Headteacher and the staff operate. We act as a critical friend to the school and staff.

As the responsible body we are tasked with:

  • Providing a strategic view
  • Agreeing a policy framework
  • Appointing the Headteacher
  • Agreeing the school improvement strategy
  • Setting statutory targets
  • Agreeing budgets and staffing structures
  • Monitoring and evaluating the work of the school
  • Signing off the self evaluation process
  • Responding to Ofsted reports

In order to do this, governors need to gain knowledge of how their school operates through training, by attending meetings, and school visits.  You can view the Governors' record of attendance at meetings by clicking on the link to the right (Please note that attendance data is recorded against Full Governing Board and Committee meetings only as required by the DFE. Governors may attend school on other matters throughout the year).

The Governing Body is limited in number and is made up of Staff Governors and Parent Governors who are elected, Foundation Governors who are all appointed by the Diocese and Local Authority Governors who are appointed by the LA.

We are often looking for new Governors who have a keen interest in developing the school. If you have relevant professional experience or a desire to learn new skills in order to contribute fully to the work of the Governing Body we want to hear from you.  

If you would like to contact the Governors please write to the Chair of Governors via the school or email chair@gov.st-pauls.org.uk
