One of the best and most effective ways in which a Governor can get to know about our school is to visit during the school day and see it at work, talking to staff and pupils and finding out what happens in the school and the classrooms.  This will add immeasurably to Governors’ understanding of our school, its staff and pupils.  Our Policy and Code of Conduct for Governors’ Structured Visits gives more information about the procedures for such visits. Each Governor has been ‘adopted’ by a class (in some cases more).  Staff will organise invitations to special events, letters etc from their pupils to be sent to their class Governor on a regular basis. Of course, Governors are welcome to pop in and  to visit their ‘twinned’ classes, although it would be best if they rang or spoke to the class teacher first, to make sure the visit is at a convenient time for the class.

IMG_0248Our Governors

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. Its responsibilities include, but are not limited to:


  • Setting targets for pupil achievement
  • Managing the school’s finances
  • Making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based
  • Appointing staff
  • Reviewing staff performance and pay

The Governing Body at St Andrew’s CE Primary School is made up of eight Foundation Governors, three Parent Governors, one local Authority Governor, the Head Teacher (ex officio) and one Staff Governor. Governors normally meet three times a year to receive reports from the Head Teacher on the life and work of the school. The Governing Body has formed several Committees and Working Parties, which focus on particular aspects of the Governors’ responsibilities eg Finance, Curriculum, Staffing and Premises. At St Andrew’s, the Governors aim to provide a curriculum appropriate to the needs of all of our pupils. It is the Governors’ aim that all children achieve their potential in every aspect of school life in an atmosphere of partnership and support. The Governing Body has responsibility for raising standards of achievement in the school. It holds senior leaders to account, seeks external views of the school and uses a range of information to set the strategic direction.
