All Saints' Church of England Primary School

All Saints' C of E Primary School


The Governing Body

All schools are overseen by a Governing Body that acts in a similar way to the board of a company. The task of the governing body is to govern the school, focusing on the core functions of providing strategic leadership, holding the Headteacher to account and making sure the school’s money is spent efficiently. Governors also have an important role in maintaining the distinctive Christian ethos of the school and developing new and existing links with All Saints’ Church and Southwark Diocese. The Headteacher has delegated authority from the governing body to follow the strategic vision and take the day-to-day decisions that are required to run the school.

All Saints’ governing body normally meets around six times a year as a whole group. The Headteacher presents a report at each meeting, informing the Governors about the recent events and activities in the school in general and about progress against targets in relation to the school’s development plan.

Some of the work of the governing body is delegated to committees to deal with in between main meetings to focus on specific aspects of the work of governors. This allows for issues needing greater attention to be discussed in more detail. Reports on these committee meetings are received from the Chairs of each committee at each meeting of the full governing body.


The governing body has established the following committees:
