Governors

Our Governors’ Role

Governors represent the largest group of voluntary workers in the country and exists to promote the interests of the school and its children. Although each governing body will reflect the needs of their individual school, the governors have 3 main roles within the school community:

1. To provide a strategic view

Governors help to decide the ways to improve the school so that children learn effectively and achieve the highest possible standards.

2. To act as a critical friend

Governors also have a supportive role and through their expertise and knowledge take responsibility for monitoring the school’s effectiveness by asking questions and seeking to make improvements.

3. To ensure accountability

The governing body is responsible for ensuring quality education and has a duty to discuss and question proposals that affect this.

The current governing body is :

 

Devon County Appointee - Mrs Rebecca Cosgrave

 

Parent Governors        - Mrs Bryony Burcher-Lewis

                                       - Mr Jason Cole

      - Dr Oliver Garrett

      - Mr Chris Goulden

 

Staff Governor - Miss Sophie Angel

 

Headteacher - Mrs Louise Prywata

 

Co-opted Governors      - Mrs Alison Clayton

                                         - Miss Rebecca Forrest

                                         - Mrs Amber Macdonald

        - Mr Jon Moore

        - Mr Henry Tobin

 

Chair of the Governors - Mrs Rebecca Cosgrave and Mrs Amber Macdonald

 

Clerk to the Governors - Mrs Nikki Evans

 

The Chair or Clerk to the Governors can be contacted at the school - 01626 833257.

 

If there are any matters regarding the school which you wish to discuss, any of the governors will be happy to talk them over with you.

 

We are organised into 2 committees: Resources (covering finance, personnel, premises and health & safety and welfare)  and Teaching and Learning (covering curriculum, inclusion/SEND, school improvement, community and parent links) with an appointed Chair and Terms of Reference for each.  Each governor is assigned to a committee, with the Head and Co-Chairs attending all meetings.  Some governors also have lead responsibilities.
 
We meet as a full Governing Body once every half-term, and in committees once a term.
