Governors at St Martin's

Governors are people who have an interest in the role of schools in their community and want to make a positive contribution to the success of local schools, improving the educational standards and achievements of their pupils.

The November 2015 Handbook, published by the Department for Education, states that school governing bodies are the strategic decision makers and vision setters. They play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education for every child by creating robust accountability for school leaders. Crucially, that means using and being familiar with objective data on the performance of pupils, teachers and finances to ask the right questions and ensure resources are allocated to school priorities.

Our Governing Body has agreed that Part 1 of its meetings will be open to observers.
Observers are invited to be present at meetings of the Full Governing Body, provided they have:

  1. Registered their interest to attend with the Chair of Governors prior to the meeting - via Tessa Jones (Clerk to the Governors) at tjones@stmartinsepsom.school
  2. Understand that as observers they may not contribute generally to the meeting (although the Chair will invite questions at an appropriate point in the agenda).

In 2016 -17 governor business will be conducted through two meetings each term. The first of these will focus primarily on leadership and management, and will include resources and premises matters. The second of the termly Full Governing Body (FGB) meetings will focus primarily on outcomes for learners and teaching and learning matters. In addition to this our Governing Body fulfils its responsibilities for the strategic leadership of our Children's Centre through termly meetings of The Responsible Body.

Summer Term 2017

  • FGB - Tuesday 18 July at 4.15 pm
