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

The Governing Body has had a particularly challenging year, focussing on supporting our new Head Teacher and staff as All Saints became part of the Academy Trust, meanwhile looking to maintain the standards of teaching and learning.

Governors were pleased to see that the most recent School Performance Results showed that the EYFS GLD was in line with National and showed an 11% increase on last year. This is particularly pleasing as All Saints does not have an attached nursery.  The KS1 Phonics at 85% exceeded both Medway and National, an excellent result considering the low levels on entry.

KS1 results were in line with National.  The KS2c results were satisfactory in Reading and Writing, however the Maths results showed room for improvement.  The purchase by MAST of the Maths No Problem teaching programme that will be taught in single year groups should show an improvement in progress and outcome.

In order to address the gender gap in Early Years a governor has the responsibility to work with the EYFS team to monitor progress.

We aim to bring FSM children into line with their peers therefore a designated governor works closely with our Pupil Premium Champion to look at how this can be achieved.

A designated Governor is responsible for Safeguarding in school.

The Head Teacher has set up subject teams that are cross phase, led by a member of SLT and includes TAs as well as teachers as part of the team.  Each team will have a designated governor who will attend subject meetings and report back to the LGB. In this way, for example, the LGB will be able to regularly assess the effectiveness of the Maths No Problem scheme across the school. Changes to the curriculum to make it more creative with opportunities built in to challenge the more able children will address an area for development identified in the last Ofsted report.

 

The Governing Body wholeheartedly supported the Head Teacher’s decision to restructure the mixed age classes and change the class names from birds to saints. During the summer break KSI classes were relocated on the ground floor with LKS2 going upstairs. School seems to have adapted well to these changes and the changes to break and lunch times. Each class will plan and present a Collective Worship relating to their saint with parents and Governors invited.

Last year the Governing Body had two Co-Chairs who shared the role, each with their own responsibilities. This arrangement worked very well until one Chair and her family relocated to another area at the end of the school year.  As we also lost our two parent governors we have had to go out to parents for nominations. We are pleased that two very committed parents have come forward. They will undergo induction and training as new governors. We look forward to welcoming them to join us and become part of the subject teams.

Governors conducted a staff survey and noted the results. In response to one of the points raised Governors held a “Meet and Greet Tea Party” at the beginning of term to meet staff and welcome four  new teachers and the new HLTA.

We will be holding a staff governor election as our Staff Governor’s term of office ends in November. We are very grateful to our Staff Governor and Associated Staff Governor for their long and valued service to the Governing Body.

We have approached Governors Services for details of prospective governors to bring us up to strength and are in the process of interviewing, with a view to appointing two new governors. New governors will be encouraged to come into school and participate in activities. Training will be arranged for new governors on the distinctive Christian character of our school. We look forward to joint training opportunities with our partner schools.

Last year the All Saints LGB decided to hold an End of Year Review in July looking at the most recent data, progress and areas for improvement. It has been decided that similar meetings dedicated to reviewing standards are an effective way to monitor progress, therefore three Progress and Data meetings have been scheduled in for the next year in addition to the LGB meetings. These Progress and Data meetings, with the DHT invited to attend will provide an opportunity to scrutinise and challenge.

  Due to our reduced governor numbers it is not possible to form separate committees, therefore it has been decided that there will be a standardised agenda for all LGB meetings to ensure that all matters are discussed. As the governance vacancies are filled we can consider setting up working parties to address particular issues when necessary.  A schedule for Monitoring Visits will be decided once training has been arranged.

The Head Teacher and Chair of Governors meet weekly for a briefing session. Governors are mindful of the need to be well informed and able to challenge the information supplied to them. We are conscious of the need to be Ofsted ready.

The All Saints LGB look forward to the coming year dedicated to improving standards and enriching the lives of all our children.
