Governors

In a voluntary-aided school such as St. Helen’s the governing body:

Sets the strategic direction of the School by:

  • setting the values, aims and objectives for the School within the context of the Christian foundation of the School;
  • agreeing the policy framework for achieving those aims and objectives;
  • setting targets; and
  • agreeing the School improvement strategy which includes approving the budget and agreeing the staffing structure.  

Challenges and supports the School by monitoring, reviewing and evaluating:

  • the implementation and effectiveness of the policy framework;
  • progress towards targets;
  • the implementation and effectiveness of the School improvement strategy;
  • the budget and the staffing structure; and
  • whether the Christian ethos of the School runs through every element of School life.

Ensures accountability by:

  • signing off the School’s own self-evaluation report and the SIAMS self-evaluation form;
  • responding to Ofsted reports when necessary;
  • holding the Head teacher to account for the performance of the School;
  • ensuring parents and pupils are involved, consulted and informed as appropriate; and
  • making available information to the community and to the Diocese.

Members of the governing body give their time and expertise freely to the school. There are fourteen Governor places. The full governing body meets at least termly with additional committee meetings in between. 

The main committees are those for:

  • Finance and premises (Chair of Committee: Mr A Griffiths)
  • Personnel (Chairs of Committee: Ms B Styles)
  • Pupils, parents, curriculum and community (Chair of Committee: Mrs Beliz Mackenzie)

In addition working parties may be set up for different purposes.
