St Anne’s Governing Body
As a Governing Body we are committed to contributing more effectively to monitoring and evaluating the school’s work. The key issues for us as a school are:
- Raising pupil’s attainment and continuing to accelerate their progress across the school.
- Increasing substantially the proportion of good or better teaching.
- Improving the effectiveness of leadership and management at all levels.
- Developing the prayer and liturgical life of the school.
- Improving and monitoring the learning environment.
The FGB is responsible for the overall monitoring and evaluation of these issues, whilst the sub-committees focus on the individual key themes.
Members of the Governing Body
Katie Livesey (Vice Chair)
Nigel Weakley (Chair of Governors)
Carl Walters (Vice Chair)
Local Authority Governor
Clerk to Governors
We have 3 main roles
- Setting our school’s strategic direction
- Being a critical friend (monitoring, challenging, evaluating and supporting the school)
- Securing accountability
We meet as a Full Governing Body (FGB) 6 times a year. We work closely with the Head Teacher; we make decisions collectively as a team, often delegating decision making to committees, individual Governors or to the Head Teacher and conduct much of our business through committees.
Governors do not get involved in the day to day management of the school.
The Admissions and Development Committee
This committee is responsible for the admissions procedure.
The Finance and Staffing Committee (FIST)
This committee works closely with our Business Manager and Head Teacher to oversee the school budget. It also develops, reviews and overseas the implementation of the Governing Body's personnel policies. It keeps up to date with new legislation and advises the Governing Body of relevant developments and carries out other staffing related tasks.
The Facilities and Communications Committee
This committee is responsible for looking into matters concerning sites and buildings including development and Health and Safety issues. It is also responsible for maintaining good communication between staff, parents, children and the community. It is responsible for the School Prospectus, website and press releases.
The Pay Committee
This committee is responsible for the reviewing and implementation of our Pay Policy, having regard to national policy, current legislation, LEA and Diocesan guidelines. Meetings are held in the spring and summer terms.
This committee is responsible for working with the Head Teacher to develop and monitor the curriculum and standards throughout the school. It keeps up to date with new strategies and advises the Governing Body of any impact these strategies will have on the school.
