Alongside the senior leadership team at St John's, governors are responsible for deciding on the strategic direction of the school. This includes contributing to decisions on:
- vision and values
- behaviour and standards
- equality and inclusion
- health, safety and safeguarding
- extended school
- special educational needs
- parental and community engagement
The Governing Body is drawn from the staff of the school, the local authority, parents and the local community.
Parent governors play a vital role on the Governing Body and their contribution is greatly valued. If you are interested in becoming a parent governor, please contact the Chair of Governors via the School Office.
Contacting the governors: Governors welcome the views of parents and are always happy to discuss any concerns or ideas you may have to improve the school. Parent governors are often available in the playground before or after school, or you can leave a message for them in the office.
