All Saints Juniors School Governance Statement
All Saints Juniors School is part of the CfBT Schools Trust, a multi-academy trust. The School was established in September 2011 in partnership with the Trust and the local community. The School is served by a Local Governing Body (LGB). Members of the LGB (‘governors’) are appointed by the CfBT Schools Trust and serve for a four- year period of office, except for the Executive Headteacher who serves ex officio.
The LGB consists of 6 governors appointed directly by the Trust (‘CfBT Governors’), 4 Parent governors, one Staff governor and the Headteacher. All governor appointments must be ratified by the Trust. To support in its strategic and operational work, the LGB has the following committees:
An Education Committee to review standards, pupil performance, quality of teaching, attendance, etc. governing body
A Resources Committee to review budget and finance, buildings, staffing, etc.
Each committee has at least three governors (excluding the Headteacher) and may co-opt expert advisers as appropriate. Both committees are responsible for vetting and reviewing those school policies that fall into their respective remit.
Committees meet termly, and the LGB meets at least once a term.
The Chairman of the LGB is Stewart Hotston, and the Clerk is Mike Rocks. Both can be contacted via the school office. Governors are listed below.
