Governors

Prestbury St Mary’s Federation Governing Body

Who we are:-

 

The Governing Body, made up of unpaid volunteers, is dedicated to developing the Federation of St Mary’s Infant and Prestbury St Mary’s Junior C of E Schools to provide the best possible education for all the pupils.

 

The members of the Governing Body are from a variety of backgrounds and actively oversee and contribute to the leadership of the Federation through the sometimes complex processes of strategic planning; challenging and supporting the Executive Headteacher and ensuring financial probity, whilst always representing the interests of the two schools and those within them.

 

There are several categories of Governors: the 7 Foundation Governors who are appointed by the Diocese of Gloucester; the Team Rector who is a Foundation Governor, ex-officio; 2 Parent Governors who are elected by the Parents; a Staff Governor who is elected by the Staff; the Headteacher, ex-officio; a Local Authority Governor who is proposed by Gloucestershire County Council and appointed by the Governing Body; a co-opted Governor (a member of staff of the other school to that of the elected staff governor) and 4 Associate Members who are appointed by the Governing Body.

 

The Governing body meets six times a year and, in order to help it in its work, has set up five committees, as follows:-

  • Curriculum Committee

  • Vision and Ethos Committee

  • Pay and Personnel Committee

  • Finance and Premises Committee

  • Admissions Committee

 

The committees also meet regularly through the year and report back to the Governing Body on their findings and decisions.
