St Paul's School Governors 2017-2018

Mr C Hayhurst             Mr A Thompson


The Governing Body works closely with the Headteacher in the management of the school. We are the strategic leaders of the school with an important role to play in ensuring every child gets the best possible education. Governing bodies have a statutory role and responsibility to raise academic achievement and promote pupil welfare.

We meet at least twice a term with additional sub-committee meetings to discuss individual matters, such as the school curriculum and finances. The minutes of recent Governors meetings and Governor newsletters are linked below.


Our priorities for 2016-2017

  • Recognise and encourage excellence in every part of school life. We have a great staff team and facilities, a sound budget and engaged supportive parents, everything needed to provide an excellent education for our children. We want to see the school build on those foundations and continuously improve.
  • Communicate effectively between parents, staff, children and governors. Make known all the great things that are being done and identify areas that can be improved.
  • Support and challenge the Senior Leadership Team, providing insights from a different point of view to help the school leadership to focus on the right areas for improvement. Ensure that school resources and finances are used in the best way.
  • Ensure all our children achieve their full potential. Our focus should always be on the happiness, confidence and progress of every child in the school. We want every child to make excellent progress and be well equipped for the future.

We are always keen to hear from parents. You can contact the Governing Body via the Chair - by letter to the school office, by email or find us at school drop off time. Alternatively, you can contribute your views about the school via the ParentView website.
