Each school has a governing body which plays an important part in the life of the school. The governing body has a general responsibility for the strategic management, which means:
- setting aims and objectives for the school;
- adopting policies for achieving those aims and objectives;
- setting targets for achieving those aims and objectives;
- and reviewing progress towards achieving the aims and objectives.
Governing Bodies are made up of local people and will include parents, persons appointed by the Local Authority, teachers, staff and the headteacher and may include representatives of the local community. All school governing bodies include parent governors who are normally elected by parents of registered pupils at the school.
Churchstoke CP School currently has a vacancy for a parent governor.
Why become a Governor?
- To make an important contribution to education by supporting the school community, its staff and pupils and helping to raise standards of education
- To experience rewarding and challenging opportunities
- To help to develop your existing skills and also learn new ones
- To meet and work with new people
- To gain awareness of the education system
A Governor is a volunteer who:
- has an interest in education;
- represents those with a key interest in the school;
- is part of a team which accepts responsibility for everything a school does;
- has time to commit to meetings and other occasions;
- is willing to learn;
- is able to act as a critical friend who supports the school but also challenges and asks questions about how the school works and the standards it achieves;
- acts as a link between parents, the local community, the Local Authority and the school.
If you are interested in the role of parent governor, please get in touch with Mr Roberts or the Clerk to the Governors Lindsey Davies (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Craig has just messaged to say that Soccerholics have to cancel the session on Tuesday 6th March due to a shortage of staff.
All parents who have paid upfront for the term will be either refunded or given an extra week following the Easter holidays.
In view of the severe weather forecast for strong winds with more prolonged snow throughout the night and Powys’ advice to consider the position as early as possible the decision is made – Churchstoke CP School will be closed tomorrow Friday 2nd March. Thank you for your support and understanding and enjoy the long weekend! The snow is now forecast to continue through to Sunday so we’ll think about Monday when we get a little closer…
