Governors

Welcome to the Stone C of E Combined School Governors page. The Governing Body of Stone is made up of a range of people from many different backgrounds, including representatives from the Local Authority, St John the Baptist Church (known as Foundation Governors), the Local Community, Parents and Staff. All Governors are volunteers and we offer our time, skills and experience to help run the School.

The Role of the Governing Body

The role of the governing body is absolutely key to the effectiveness of the school and operates at a strategic level. Its key functions are to:

The Head teacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing body.

How the Governing Body works

Governors meet as a Full Governing Body three times in an academic year. We also meet in four smaller sub-committees:

As well as meeting together regularly as a Governing Body, Governors like to come and visit the school and be involved in school life. We particularly enjoy attending events like concerts, sporting events, and Church Services where we can celebrate the achievements of the children as well as sharing in significant moments in the life of the school. We monitor the new initiatives which the head and staff are developing and see the impact they have on children's learning. Above all, we hope to support the staff of the school in creating a safe, happy and caring environment where our children can develop, flourish and achieve.
