The governors of St Paul’s Primary School are delighted to serve this school and community to fulfil their desire that all children and adults can flourish. We are dedicated to ensure the future success of the school in which everyone achieves their God-given potential. St Paul’s has a reputation for providing education in a very supportive Christian environment. We seek to encourage and ‘build each other up’. (I Thessalonians 5:11).
We are a team of committed volunteers who bring our own: talents, skills, knowledge, experience and hopes, to fulfil the key roles of a Church of England school’s governing body:
To set distinctively Christian visions and values for our school
To set policies for our school in the context of its vision and values
To monitor and evaluate the progress of our school in terms of its vision and values
To maintain the high standards of our school by managing all of the available resources in the best interests of our pupils
To ensure that there is an effective culture of safeguarding
Put all decisions and discussion within the context of the Christian foundation of the school
During the course of the last Ofsted Inspection (June 2017) our school was highly praised for 'ensuring that all pupils receive wide and rich learning experiences' and that our school has 'developed an exceptional curriculum'. We will strive to ensure that this continues to be the case: to create a happy and stimulating environment in which our children will feel secure and be able to acquire: wisdom, knowledge, skills and the will to use them through the high quality teaching and learning that St Paul’s offers.
None of our governors have declared interests regarding contracts within the school or with companies and securities.
All of our Governors have voting rights.
