Our Governors are representatives of the local community, parents, staff and the church. They bring a range of interests, knowledge and skills. They are responsible for overseeing the organisation, curriculum and budget of the school and offering support. The day-to-day running of the school, however, is entrusted to the Headteacher and staff.
The GB (Governing Body) plays a crucial part in improving and developing the school and in helping every student to achieve their potential. The three key roles for Governors are:
The GB is a corporate entity and acts as a group.
The GB consists of 15 appointed and elected Governors:
The full GB meets every half term; all parents and staff are welcome to attend and observe the first part of these meetings. To carry out its many duties the GB is divided into smaller committees. These meet each half term and consist of:
Care and Communications committee, Resources committee and a Standards committee. In addition, there is a Pay committee which meets as required. The Terms of Reference for each committee can be found on our policies page.
Governors are also expected to form a ‘link’ with a specific curriculum area of the school, to which visits are encouraged, to get to know the work of the school better and keep the full GB up-to-date.
Each academic year, the Governing Body writes a report to provide a summary life at St. Aidan’s. The most recent reports can be found here:
