All Saints Church of England Primary and Nursery School


Who are our Governors?

Chair of Governors - Dr Roger Elias

Clerk to Governors - Helen Vine 

All Saints School Governors play a very important role within our school. They work closely with the Headteacher and staff to ensure the best possible education for our children. Our Governors come from a variety of backgrounds and offer a range of experience. They often visit the school to work with the children and to see what is happening.

The day-to-day management of the school is the responsibility of the Head Teacher. The Governors support the Head in helping to shape the school's future direction and focus.

We are very pleased that at our last Ofsted inspection, it was found that members of the governing body are reflective and deeply committed to the school.

The school governors are volunteers from the local community. They are not educational professionals but people who have a genuine interest in education. They do not work as individuals but as a team - the Governing Body - providing strategic leadership and accountability in the school. The governing body acts as a ‘critical friend’ to the headteacher, with duties and responsibilities which include:

 -Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

 -Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of

the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and

 -Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its

money is well spent.
