Governors

All Saints Governing Body

The Governing Body at All Saints is strongly committed to promoting high standards and expectations and ensuring that every child gets the best possible start to their education. We are an enthusiastic team of volunteers, who meet twice a term for full Governing Body meetings as well as regularly for sub committee meetings such as the School Improvement Committee. Supported by our Christian ethos, Governors also help to provide a safe, nurturing and caring environment in the school and promote tolerance and respect for people of all faiths and cultures. We understand that through our work we can play an important role in preparing our children positively for life in modern Britain.

Our key functions include:

  • Setting the vision and strategic direction of the school
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school
  • Ensuring financial resources are well spent
  • Carrying out all our statutory duties such as safeguarding.

On 1st September 2018 All Saints CE Primary School entered into a formal collaboration with North Rigton CE Primary School. The two primary schools work together very closely and share a headteacher. From 1st January 2019 the Governing Bodies of the two schools will merge with Governors taking responsibilities across both schools. Full details of the new Governing Body will be publish in January 2019.
