Role of the Governing Board

At St John’s Primary School and Nursery, the Governing Board complements and enhances the school leadership by providing support and challenge.  This relationship is generally known as ‘the critical friend’.

The first priority of the Governing Board is to ensure that the school fulfils its role in safeguarding children and promoting their welfare.

The other core functions of the Governing Board are:

  • Ensuring that the vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school are clearly defined;
  • Ensuring that the Head Teacher performs his or her responsibilities for the educational performance of the school;
  • Ensuring the sound, proper and effective use of the school’s financial resources.

More information about the roles and responsibilities of the Governing Board can be found in the Governance Handbook.

The Chair of Governors at St John’s is Mr Daryl Molyneux.  The Clerk to the Governors is Miss Dawn Ellis.

The Governing Board 

The Governing Board at St John’s is made up of 13 governors:

  • Two parent governors, elected by the parents and carers of pupils at the school;
  • One staff governor, elected by the staff employed by the school;
  • One Local Authority governor, appointed by Warwickshire County Council;
  • The Head Teacher;
  • Eight co-opted governors, appointed by the Governing Board based on the skills and experience that they can offer.

The full Governing Board meets twice per term.  We also have two main sub-committees:

  • Performance and Standards: This committee is made up of five governors, including the Head Teacher.  The Performance and Standards Committee monitors teaching quality and pupil progress across the school.
  • Resources: This committee is made up of six governors, including the Head Teacher.  The Resources Committee monitors the school’s finances and health and safety.

Governors also support the Senior Leadership Team and participate in the school’s monitoring activities, such as diagnostic days and pupil progress meetings.
