All Saints Church of England Primary School

A United, Caring Community of Learners



The Governing Body provides strategic leadership and accountability for the school. It has three key functions:

Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

Governors set the aims and objectives for the school and set the policies and targets for achieving those aims and objectives. They monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making and act as a source of challenge and support to the headteacher.

In action, this means:

Appointing and performance reviewing the head teacher, including making decisions about pay
Managing budgets and deciding how money is spent
Engaging with pupils, staff, parents and the school community
Sitting on panels and making decisions about things like pupil exclusions and staff disciplinary
Addressing a range of education issues within the school including disadvantaged pupils, pupils with special needs, staff workload and teacher recruitment
Looking at data and evidence to ask questions and have challenging conversations about the school

The Governing Body buys into the local authority clerking and Governor support services in order to ensure governors are well-supported in their work.


At All Saints we have a governing body comprising 12 members:

3 parent governors (appointed by ballot by parents)
1 Local Authority Governor
1 Staff Governor
The Head teacher
3 Foundation Governors (appointed by the Diocesan Board of Education for the Diocese of Leeds) including the Priest of the Parish of Horton All Saints
3 Co-opted Governors

As well as the Full Governing Body, which meets 6 times a year, there are two standing committees: the Estates, Staffing and Finance committee; and the Curriculum and School Improvement Committee. These committees usually meet in the weeks before each Full Governing Body Meeting in order to scrutinise in detail these key aspects of the school on behalf of the Full Governing Body.

Governors are elected for a term of four years. If you would be interested in becoming a governor, please ask any of the governors or the headteacher for more information.
