St. John's C.E. Primary School

What We Do

We have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

Governors have a range of duties and powers to challenge and support the school to deliver high standards of educational achievement. This includes:

  • helping set aims and objective for the school
  • adopting policies and setting targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • ensuring accountability
  • monitoring and evaluating school performance
  • overseeing the management of school finances
  • making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based and the learning environment is safe
  • appointing the Headteacher and reviewing the Headteacher’s performance.
