Governors


St John’s Governing Body consists of a combination of parent, staff, foundation and associate governors. Foundation governors are appointed by the Bishop and the Diocese, whilst others are elected by parents and the school. Governing Body meetings take place approximately every 6 weeks and the non-confidential section of the minutes can be viewed by parents, by a written request made to the Headteacher.

The Governing Body has three core functions:

  • to help set the strategic direction of the school;
  • to hold the headteacher to account for the performance of pupils at the school;
  • to ensure financial probity and the prudent use of public money.
