Meet the Governors
Mrs Janet Harsent - Chair of Governors
The remit and impact of the governing body of All Saints Church of England Primary School.
The Governing Body of All Saints School is pleased to confirm that we are rated GOOD by Ofsted and as GOOD by the Diocese.
Governors are also pleased to report that our Nursery, situated at the nearby Children’s Centre, is thriving and has become a valued part of our All Saints family. It was a long-held aim to have our own nursery so we are pleased to report that it has been a real success.
The Governing body is dedicated to effectively supporting the Head Teacher and her staff team, particularly during these challenging times. Each governor brings a variety of skills and experience to the role and is responsible for monitoring a particular aspect of school life: Safeguarding: Pupil Premium; Sports Premium spending; Special Needs; Nursery, Foundation and Early years; Website compliance and E Safety; Premises, Health and Safety. Monitoring visits take place three times each year, focussed on ensuring that progress is being made in line with the aims of the School Improvement Plan and the Ofsted areas for improvement, paying particular attention to the progress of vulnerable groups. Governors monitoring reports are shared with the governing body. Governors are mindful of the need to know our school and be well informed in order to challenge the information given at our termly LGB meetings, (six times each year).
This year the Head Teacher and SLT have introduced the innovative Cornerstones Curriculum that will ensure that challenge and opportunities to succeed are firmly embedded into every aspect of the children’s learning. I have been impressed with the planning that has gone into ensuring that our children have been able to safely return to school to continue on their learning journey as part of our All Saints family.
The All Saints School LGB looks forward to meeting the challenges of the coming year, dedicated to supporting the Head Teacher and staff as we all strive to raise standards and enrich the lives of all our children that they may grow in confidence to achieve their full potential.
Jan Harsent. Chair of Governors.
