Governors

St Paul’s CE Primary School is run by the Headteacher (interim) and a team of staff. The Governing Body oversees the running of the school but is non executive in its capacity. Its role is to provide strategic direction for the work and improvement of the school. It also supports, monitors, and evaluates the effectiveness of the school. Finally it holds the school to account for the standards achieved and the quality of education. This is outlined in the NGA's Code of Practice which all Governors must sign and adhere to. 

The Full Governing Body typically meets once a month to make the key decisions on behalf of the school.  These  decisions are made in light of a series of documents that every state school maintains. Minutes of the meetings are fully recorded by a Clerk and made available on the school website.

The rationale for meeting monthly is in order that the whole Governing Body is abreast of all aspects of the School’s affairs at any one time. In addition, sub-committee meetings are convened as required and report to these monthly meetings. Further, Governors are each allocated the responsibility to overview a specific subject area and to maintain links with a specific year group and its teacher.  A record of attendance and training by Governors is maintained – both attendance at meetings and visits to the school as well as training undertaken.

The Governing Body operates under an Instrument of Governance, a single page document that is agreed with the Local Education Authority, which is Camden in our case. With the exception of the Vicar and the Head Teacher and the staff Governor role which has a one year term, all other Governors serve for a four year period and can serve for more than one period.
