Governors

 

As Chair of Governors I welcome you to our governance page.
 
Our Governing Body supports St Matthew's C of E Primary and Nursery Academy and St George's C of E Primary Academy.
 
We are part of St Christopher’s Multi Academy Trust, and our delegated authority and responsibilities are clearly defined by the MAT board of directors.
 
Governors are all volunteers with different skills and experience, but have a commitment to education and the schools, children, staff, parents and carers.
 
All governors are part of the local governing body known as the LGB which meets every term and also hold various portfolios as part of either the resources or teaching and learning committees which also meet every term.
 
School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in the schools and its key functions are to:
  • set the aims and objectives for the school
  • set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)

 

It is a privilege to be part of this professional team across both schools, and our LGB works with a ‘hands on’ approach, and any discussion with parents and carers is most welcome.
