Welcome from Mrs Pam Slater, Chair of Governors,

St Paul’s Catholic Schools Federation

 

 Mrs Pam Slater, Chair of GovernorsThank you for your interest in the Governance of St Paul’s.

I am fortunate to be Chair of a committed, proactive team of Governors who are very interested and involved in all aspects of school life.

We work closely with the Executive Headteacher  to support and continue the development and improvement of the school. Governors are particularly active in developing strong relationships with parents and regularly attend parent consultation meetings, where we welcome and encourage parents to share their view of the schools.

Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you would like to speak to any of the federation governors. I look forward to hearing from you.

Pam Slater

 

Our Governors

What is a school  governor?
Governors are volunteers who collectively make up the school’s Governing Body.  The overall responsibility of the Governing Body is to support the school to provide the best possible education for all our children.

Governors aim to provide the best possible education for our pupils by:

  • working strategically to help raise standards
  • monitoring and evaluating pupils progress
  • supporting and challenging the leaders of the school
  • agreeing and checking budgets to ensure accountability and value for money

Who are the governors at St Paul’s?
St Paul’s Primary and Middle Schools have a federated Governing Body.  It is composed of 15 individuals representing parents, school staff, the local community and the Catholic Church.
All Governors are volunteers and serve a four year term but they can be re-elected to provide continuity.  It is led by a Chairman and Vice Chairman who are elected by the rest of the Governing Body.
There are  6 different types of Governors:

  1. Foundation – appointed by the Catholic Church
  2. LA – appointed by the Local Authority
  3. Staff – any member of school staff can volunteer
  4. Parent – elected by Parents
  5. Associate – appointed by Governing Body
  6. Co-opted – appointed by Governing Body
