Welcome to the Governors pages for St Cross School!
At St Cross we are fortunate to have a very strong and dedicated team of Governors who work extremely hard throughout the year in partnership with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team to ensure the smooth running of the school. On behalf of the Board of Governors, I welcome this opportunity to briefly introduce you to the work the Governing Body undertakes to ensure that every child is helped to realise their potential within a creative learning environment, and where everyone is valued and respected.
The Governing Body has a range of powers and duties laid down by various Education Acts. In the main, these responsibilities relate to:
* Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
* Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
* Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
Our Governing Body meets each term to implement these responsibilities. In addition to these formal meetings there are a series of informal sub-committee meetings dealing with more specific issues such as resources, school improvement plans and finance. Governors also have responsibilities for specific curriculum areas within the school such as English, Maths and also Safeguarding.
Governors adopt, review and monitor a range of policies that govern the operation of the school including Health and Safety, Behaviour, Curriculum and Performance Management.
If you wish to contact the Governors you can do so via the school office or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Best wishes & God Bless
Cate Campany (Chair of Governors)
