The Governing Body – What do we do?

The Governing Body of our school are all volunteers and we all became governors at All Saints’ for one main reason, and that is to help All Saints’ pupils have access to the best opportunities available. We work as a team, and through committees and with training, make decisions to help raise standards in our school.

We are proud of our school and of the staff, children parents and carers who are involved in making our school a great place to learn and work.


Responsibilities – what are they?
The governing body has a range of duties and powers and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement including setting targets for pupil achievement, managing the school's finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based, appointing staff and reviewing staff performance and pay and many more.

The day to day management of the school is the responsibility of the Head teacher.


Our governing body is made up of 13 governors from the following categories:

  • Staff governor
  • Local Authority (LA) governors
  • Foundation governors
  • Parent governors
  • Co-opted Governors
  • School Head teacher

All the governors are members of committees that meet regularly throughout the year. The committee meetings are supported by the Clerk to the Governors to whom all correspondence should be addressed.

The Chair of Governors, Clare Gilman-Abel can be contacted by leaving a message at the school office or in writing.

The minutes and reports for the full Governor meetings and Committee meetings are available and can be requested via the Clerk to the Governors at or by leaving a message for her at the school office.



If you are interested in becoming a governor at our school or have a skill you think could help us, you can either speak to any of the governors (either in the playground, or leave a message in the school office) to discuss the role, commitment and responsibilities further.
