SCHOOL Board Of Governors

 St Mary’s CE Primary School Governing Board

The purpose of the Governing Board is to help the school to provide the best possible education for its pupils. The Governing Board sets the school aims and policies together with the Headteacher. The Governors have responsibilities in such areas as curriculum, finance, premises, personnel and special educational needs. No individual governor has any power unless delegated by the Governing Board. The Governing Board as a whole is responsible for any decisions made.
