Governor's Section

School Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

The governing body is a group of volunteers elected by parents and staff or nominated by the local authority.

We work with the headteacher to decide on the strategic direction of the school, how the budget is spent and raising standards in all areas of school life.

We do this so that the children have the best education that they possibly can have.

The full Governing Body meets twice a term, with one of the meetings each term set aside for the Governors to look at the school’s progress towards targets set out in the School Development Plan.

We have three committees:

  • Admissions Committee
  • Finance and General Purposes
  • Policies, Curriculum and School Improvement

The committees meet twice every term and we sometimes set up working parties to develop particular ideas or in response to particular issues.

If you would like to contact me or the governing body at any time then this can be done through the school office.

Mr Gary Cooper – Chair of Governors 

The role of the governing body

Working in partnership with the head and other staff, governors are involved in:

  • setting the school’s aims and policies;
  • improving standards of teaching and achievement;
  • setting the school’s budget plan and monitoring expenditure;
  • interviewing and appointing teachers and support staff;
  • acting as a link between the local community and the school;
  • dealing with complaints about the school;
  • drawing up an action plan after an inspection, and monitoring the success of the plan

At St Ethelwold’s we teach values for life encompassed by our core values:

  • Belief
  • Effort
  • Kindness
