St Johns Primary Local Governing Body
The governing body of St. John’s School is comprised of a group of volunteers, both from within the school community (staff and parents) and the wider community, with an interest in the education of the children of St.John’s. We work together as a team, to ensure the best possible education for all the children, enabling them to realise and achieve their potential at each stage of their journey through our school.
We take every opportunity to expand our skills by attending training courses provided and visiting the school. St John’s has a very active governing body with full governing body meetings take place once a term.
The Governing Body can be contacted in writing through the school office. Please mark any letters for the attention of the Chair of Governors.
The governing body’s work focuses on three core strategic functions:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
- Holding the CEO and Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
The Governing Body will have five public meetings in the year 2019/20. These will be held on the dates listed below:
- Wednesday 25th September 2019 7pm
- Wednesday 4th December 2019 7pm
- Wednesday 11th March 2020 7pm
