Message from the Chair of the Board of Governors


The aim of the Board of Governors at our school is to work with the staff in helping the children achieve their full potential in a happy, caring environment.

- Dominic Cooper



We do this in four main ways:

  • Monitoring the performance and progress of our children;
  • Working with the staff to help them teach and care for our children;
  • Deciding on how the resources of the school are best used;
  • Planning ahead so that the performance of our children and our school continues to improve.


To deliver this effectively, the Governing Board members are representative of all the key groups involved in our school – the parents, the staff and the church community. All of these people have the best interests of the school at heart and give a great deal of time in support of St. Mary's School.


We meet together at least once a term as a whole team, and sub committees (such as our Outcomes Committee and Resources Committee) meet regularly. In addition we each have a specialist area that we take particular interest in (eg. Maths, English, Science and Special Needs), and we are linked with individual year groups to track their progress as they grow and develop through the school.

We are always keen to hear your views and I hope that we can work together to ensure that St. Mary's continues to develop "from Good to Outstanding" over the next few years.
