The full Governing Body of All Saints Infants School (ASIS) met six times during the 2020/21 academic year, once per half term. Due to the pandemic, all of these meetings were held virtually. At the start of the year, the Governing Body decided to dispense with the School Matters Committee which previously had focused on the management of the school’s budget, and decision-making regarding school premises matters. Instead, it was decided that all such matters should be covered in full Governing Body meetings and therefore the requirements for reporting to the local authority on the budget was an important consideration in scheduling these governing body meetings.
The Governing Body is responsible for setting the strategy of the school and monitoring its implementation. It is supported in this regard by a Strategy Committee, which also met a number of times during the year, primarily to oversee the development of a new service level agreement covering the headteacher services provided to ASIS by Anthem Trust, the employer of the Joint Head for ASIS and All Saints Junior School. This work culminated in the signing of a new agreement between ASIS and the Trust at the start of the 2021/22 academic year.
The Governing Body is also supported by an Admissions Committee, which is responsible for the development of the school’s admissions policy, ensuring that it is legal and compliant with the expectations of the Diocese of Oxford, and ensuring that the policy is applied accurately and consistently. Following a legally compliant consultation process, the Governing Body approved changes to the admission policy for 2022/23.
Governors expect that the school will promote and deliver the highest possible standards of provision for pupils in terms of safeguarding, curriculum, health and safety and environment. Governors are responsible for the conduct of the school in all areas. All Governors are involved in setting and monitoring the school's vision, aims and policies and may be involved in hearing appeals or grievances.
Key roles of the Governing Body:
Strategic Aims of the Governing Body
Effectiveness of the Governing Body
We are continuously striving to maintain the highest standards within the Governing Body. We undertake an annual evaluation of our effectiveness and a skills audit. Each Governor has a designated link role and is responsible for matters relating to that role. We are aware of the skills that each Governor brings to the school and those areas in which we are short. We seek external advice and guidance to help in these areas, including the engagement of Associate Governors to provide specific skills and expertise, and as far as possible we seek to recruit Governors with appropriate skills and expertise to fill our vacancies. We ensure that governors have ongoing access to relevant training and development activities in order to maximise their effectiveness as a governor and the effectiveness of the governing body as a whole.
