Prestbury St Mary’s Federation Governing Body

 

The Governing Body, made up of volunteers, is dedicated to developing the Prestbury St Mary's Federation to provide the best possible education for all the pupils at St Mary's C of E Infant School and Prestbury St Mary's C of E Junior School.

 

The members of the Governing Body are from a variety of backgrounds and actively oversee and contribute to the leadership of the Federation through the processes of strategic planning, challenging and supporting the Executive Head Teacher, and ensuring financial probity, while always representing the interests of the two schools and those within them.

 

There are several categories of Governor:

  • Seven Foundation Governors appointed by the Diocese of Gloucester
  • The Team Rector who is a Foundation Governor (ex-officio)
  • Two Parent Governors  elected by the Parents
  • A Staff Governor elected by the Staff
  • The  Executive Head Teacher (ex-officio)
  • A Local Authority Governor who is proposed by Gloucestershire County Council and appointed by the Governing Body
  • A co-opted Governor
  • Four Associate Members who are appointed by the Governing Body.

 

The Governing body meets six times a year and comprises five committees:

  • Curriculum Committee
  • Vision and Ethos Committee

  • Pay and Personnel Committee

  • Finance and Premises Committee

  • Admissions Committee

 

The committees meet regularly through the year and report back to the Governing Body.
