Our Governors

 

Ashley CofE Primary School is an academy in the Good Shepherd Trust, a family of church school academies within the Diocese of Guildford. For more information on the Trust please click here.

 

 

In accordance with the DfE’s current guidance for Governance of academies and multi-academy trusts, our Local Governing body is responsible for:

  1. Setting the vision and strategic direction of our school, ensuring all statutory duties are met and to setting an ethos of high expectations of everyone in the school community. This includes high expectations for the behaviour, progress and attainment of all pupils and for the conduct and professionalism of both staff and governors
  2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff and  ensuring that the Headteacher implements the strategic framework established by the board.
  3. Overseeing the school’s financial performance and ensuring that money is well spent and in line with the school’s strategic priorities.

The Local Governing Body meets once per term and all Governors are expected to attend. We have three main subcommittees that meet every half term to focus on particular aspects of School life: The Curriculum, Learning and Progress Committee; The Safeguarding Committee; and The Resources Committee.
