Our Governors

The governing body is the school’s accountable body. It is responsible for the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards. The governing body aims to ensure that pupils are provided with a good education and that the school supports their well-being. The governing body has a duty to act fairly and without prejudice and in so far as it has responsibility for staff, fulfils all the legal expectations as, or on behalf of the employer.

The governors at St Peter’s help make decisions that ensure that the school achieves the very best for all the children, whatever their ability, before they move on to the next stage of their education. We ensure that standards are maintained, that the school continues to maintain its recent "Good" rating from Ofsted and strives to be an outstanding school and that the children enjoy their learning in a fun filled environment.

As governors we have a legal responsibility to:

  • ensure that the National curriculum is followed
  • oversee the school budget
  • ensure that Special Educational Needs are met
  • monitor the condition of the school grounds and buildings.

The full governing body is made up from members of the community, school staff, and parents who all contribute a wide range of experiences and skills. All governors have equal status no matter how they were appointed.

The governors meet every six weeks as a full board.  Each of the governors has an area of responsibility aligned to their skills set. 

The St Peter's board of governors focus on their core strategic roles as defined by the Department of Education:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

St Peter’s governors are committed to their goal of achieving an excellent environment for all the pupils to enjoy their time at our school. We are focussed not only on the educational achievement but also on the school’s other values, which are considered equally important.

Governors and the Clerk carry out their duties mainly during evening meetings and are encouraged to attend training sessions to help them to do their job effectively. They visit the school regularly to meet with the Headteacher and other members of the Management Team, and monitor targets on the School Improvement Plan through occasional classrooms visits.

If you are interested in becoming a school governor or would like to raise any issues with the governors, please contact us via the school office.  You can find out more about being a school governor here.


We currently have a vacancy for a Parent Governor at our school.  To find out more, please ask at the school office.
