Our School Governors

The role of the school governors is to set strategic direction, to hold school leaders to account for improving performance – by acting as a critical friend – and to make sure money is well spent.

As a voluntary aided, Church of England school, our governing body is made up of:
  • Foundation Governors: appointed by the school’s founding body – being the Bathwick Parochial Church Council
  • Parent Governors: elected parents of children at the school
  • Staff Governors: members of the school staff
  • Authority Governors: nominated by the Local Authority
  • Ex-officio Governors: being the Headteacher and the Rector of the Bathwick Parishes
  • Associate Governors: members of the local community (appointed by the rest of the governing body) to contribute specifically on issues related to their particular area of expertise

The full governing body meets approximately five times a year where the on-going business of committees, the governing body and the school are discussed, reported on and where decisions are taken by a majority vote.

Most of the work of the governors is done at committee level. Our governor committees are:
  • Fabric and finance
  • Standards and curriculum
  • Personnel
  • Admissions
The governors are supported in their work by a Clerk to the Governing Body.
