Governors

A warm welcome from our Governing Body

 

To contact our Governors, please email Janet Ruthven (Chair of Governors) at

a.governors@st-peters-jun.hants.sch.uk

Governors are the strategic leaders within schools and have the responsibility of promoting high standards of educational achievement, ensuring every child in their school receives the best quality education. ​The DfE Governance Handbook (​March 2019)​ states the governing body has three ​core functions;

 

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

 

Governors are appointed by different groups.  Within church schools Foundation Governors are appointed by the church, and have additional responsibilities within the governing body:

 

Foundation governors have the responsibility to secure the character of the school as a Church of England voluntary school, that it is preserved and developed on accordance with the school’s trust deed and its ethos statement. This will include facilitating links between the school and its parish and being involved in the preparation of the school’s self-evaluation prior to a SIAMS inspection, and possibly attending the inspection itself.

 

The FGB meets twice a term, and delegates some of its responsibilities to three committees:

  • PPP (Personnel, Pay and Pastoral)
  • RS&C (Raising Standards & Curriculum)
  • Resources

Impact Statements

Ofsted Remote Monitoring Inspection, March 2021:


Governors are well informed about recent improvements in curriculum developments and about current adaptations for remote learning. They are rightly proud of the growing sense of community in the school that has resulted from leaders’ actions during the pandemic. Governors have made excellent use of the virtual additional training opportunities available to them during this time, increasing their knowledge and skill set. As a result, they are confident in being able to support and challenge leaders regarding the improvements that still need to be made in the school‘.
