The Governing Body is accountable for the way in which the school’s resources are allocated to meet the objectives set out in the school improvement plan in the most effective and efficient way. Governors are committed to creating a school ethos and environment which focuses on gaining the highest educational attainment whilst ensuring every child feels safe, supported and fulfils their individual potential. To fulfil this vision governors are committed to ensuring the highest calibre of teaching staff who share the school ethos and work in partnership with parents and the wider community.


About our Governors

St Paul’s School has a committed and skilled governing body who bring with them a range of backgrounds and expertise which both support and challenge in delivery effective governance and leadership to the school.

Several of the governors work on behalf of the Parish of St Thomas of Canterbury in a range of roles including Eucharistic Ministers and Catechists.

Governors are "volunteers" giving their time and energy to support the pupils and staff of St Paul’s School. In return they have the satisfaction of knowing they are making a real difference to the education and well- being of children within St Paul’s School.

The chair of Governor’s, Mrs Michelle Henderson, can also be contacted through governors support if anyone interested in becoming a governor would like an informal chat.

Link Governors

The governing body has a duty to determine the direction and policies of the school, to monitor its standards and be held to account for its conduct and performance. Visiting the school is one of the key ways to discover how it functions, and to keep under review how it operates to increase the governing body’s first-hand knowledge, informing strategic decision making. Therefore we have several link governors who liaise with the Phase Stage Leaders as follows:-

Safeguarding - Mrs L. Stockton
Finance - Mrs M. Henderson
Looked After Children - Mrs L. Stockton
School and Community Engagement - Mr C. Dos Santos
Catholic Ethos - Vacancy
Special Educational Needs - Mr C. Dos Santos
Premises/Health & Safety - Vacancy
Attendance and Behaviour - Mrs R. Petch
School Improvement and Curriculum (including Pupil Premium) - Mrs L. Stockton and Mrs S. Gunston

The link governors work to a timetables schedule, with a clear focus for their visit with written reports presented to the full governing body.
