Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section. 


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

Please make sure you look at our MAST details also.

Mrs Janet Harsent - chair

Mrs Janet Harsent - Chair of Governors

 

The All Saints Governing Body has had a year of considerable change that has seen the retirement of long serving governors and the recruitment of a new Staff Governor, two Parent Governors and three Community Governors, bringing the LGB up to full strength. Each of these governors brings with them a variety of skills and experiences that will make us able to effectively support and constructively challenge the Head Teacher and Senior Leadership Team for maximum impact on pupil outcomes.

Our new governors will undertake Induction Training and an introduction to our distinctive Christian character as a church school.  Each governor has a responsibility to monitor and support a particular area of school life, Safeguarding; Foundation and Early Years; Special Needs; Pupil Premium: Sports Premium: Website compliance and E-Safety; Health and Safety and Premises. Governors will liaise with staff regularly and report back to the LGB meetings.

There has been a change of Head Teacher.  In October 2017 Simeon Corfield tendered his resignation in order to pursue other work in the Education Sector. Governors are pleased that Jo Strachan, Deputy Head Teacher, has agreed to act up as Head Teacher for the remainder of this school year. The Head Teacher and Chair of Governors have a weekly briefing meeting.

The Governing Body are pleased to report that changes have been made to the curriculum to make it more creative  and challenging, especially for the most able children, an area for development identified in the last Ofsted report.  Challenge and creativity are now firmly embedded into the curriculum.

The introduction of the Maths No Problem teaching programme across the Trust has seen an improvement in progress and attainment in maths across the school.

Governors conduct a staff, pupil and parent surveys and note the results. We monitor and evaluate the responses and action is taken to address any concerns.   As there were a number of new staff and governors in September the LGB held a Meet and Greet tea party before the first meeting of the new school year.

Governors meet each term (6 times during the year) with three of those meetings dedicated to Progress and Data.  These meetings provide opportunities to monitor the progress children are making using the latest available data, paying particular attention to the more vulnerable groups.

 As governors we are mindful of the need to know our school and be well informed in order to challenge the information supplied to us.  We are conscious of the need to be Ofsted ready and look forward to sharing with them the fantastic work that our children and staff do.

The All Saints LGB look forward to the coming year dedicated to supporting the Head Teacher and staff as we all strive to improve standards and enrich the lives of all our children.

 

Jan Harsent. Chair of Governors.
