School Governors have a key role to play in shaping the ethos of schools, raising standards and supporting teachers.
Governors are involved in appointing members of staff, deciding policies and looking after budgets and buildings. The governor's role is that of 'a critical friend', being supportive but not afraid to ask difficult questions.
As our school is Voluntary Aided, some of our governors are foundation governors, appointed by the Church to preserve and develop the religious character of schools and to secure compliance with the Trust Deed. They represent the interests of the Church in Wales and are in a majority on the Governing Body.
The governors are the employers of the staff in the school and are also the admissions authority.
We are very fortunate in having a very strong and supportive governing body. Our current governors are:
Mr. Paul Gimson - Chair (Parent Governor)
Mr. Neil Lauwerys- Vice Chair (Foundation Governor)
Ms. Pauline Owens
Mrs. Angela Parr
Mr. Neil Whittington
Mrs Loretta van Rijn
Mr Tanvier Ahmed
LEA Representative Governor
Mr. Daniel Caunt
Rev. Caroline Downes
Mr. Richard Thomas
Mrs. Lisa Bates
The Clerk to the Governing Body is Miss. Debra Williams. She can be contacted via school.
Any letters you wish to be passed to the Chair of Governors can be addressed for his attention at the school or sent via Miss. Debra Williams.
The Diocesan Director of Education is Rev. Edwin Counsell.
