 St John's Governing Body

The Governing Body exists to help the school provide a high quality education for children in a supportive, caring environment.  It does this by:
  • setting the school's values, vision and strategic direction
  • challenging and supporting the school by continually monitoring, reviewing and evaluating its performance
  • ensuring that the school is accountable to its children, the local community, those who fund and maintain it, and the staff it employs.

Governors are also responsible for overseeing the school's finances, checking that resources are being managed well and helping with the appointment of staff.

Governors' Questionnaire Results

During the Spring Term, our governors conducted a questionnaire to seek the views of parents and carers on topics ranging from the quality of teaching to the school meals that are provided.  To find the full results from the questionnaire, please click on the link below.  If you would like to discuss the results, then please contact Mr Hope or Ms Ann Westmoreland (Chair of Governors) through the school office.
