Annual Statement of Governance 2018-19

 

 

The Governing Body of All Saints Infants School meets four times during each academic year. The Governing Body delegates some of its functions to the School Matters Committee which meets at least three times during the academic year, and whose membership is chosen from the full Governing Body.

The Governing Body is responsible for setting the strategy of the school and monitoring its implementation. Governors expect that the school will promote and deliver the highest possible standards of provision for pupils in terms of curriculum, environment, safeguarding and health & safety. Governors are responsible for the conduct of the school in all areas.  

 

Key roles of the Governing Body:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent
     
    The School Matters Committee performs the following functions:
  • Determining how the school's budget is spent 
  • Staff pay and performance management
  • Health and safety
  • Building and Premises matters
  • Any other relevant matters
     
    All Governors are involved in setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies and may be involved in hearing appeals or grievances.
     
    Strategic Aims of the Governing Body
  • To continue to insist on the highest possible standards of Education and Learning for our school and its pupils and in the process achieve an Ofsted rating of ‘outstanding’
  • To consider and determine the school’s strategic direction with particular consideration given to:
  • The long-term sustainability of the school in terms of budget, staffing, admissions and performance and the identification and mitigation of risks in these areas
  • The ability of the school to achieve the goals established in the School Improvement Plan
  • The ability of the school to maintain the highest standards of provision for pupils in terms of curriculum, environment, safeguarding and health & safety
  • The preservation of the school’s status as a church school and its relationship with All Saints Church and the Oxford Diocese
  • One Headteacher across both schools
  • Sharing of staff and resources
  • Greater integration of families and pupils
     
    Effectiveness of the Governing Body.
    We are continously striving to maintain the highest standards within the Governing Body. Each Governor has a designated 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 and as far as possible recruit Governors with appropriate skills to fill our vacancies. We are currently undertaking our annual self evaluation.
