Governors

Message from the Chair of Governors

I have been a Governor at St Paul’s since 2004 and I was privileged to take on the responsibility of Chair in September 2016.

In all my time here, I have been consistently impressed by and proud of the behaviour and work ethic of the pupils and the welcome they give to anyone who visits. On outings, strangers frequently compliment staff on our lovely children!

We are extremely proud of the wonderful family atmosphere at St Paul’s and the Governing Body strives to nurture it in all the decisions we make.

We have a skilled and hard-working staff, many of whom have been with us for many years, who are dedicated to ensuring that St Paul’s children receive a broad and enriching curriculum in a stimulating and safe learning environment. By the time each child leaves us we aim for them to have succeeded to the best of their abilities. St Paul’s pupils are recognisable long after they have left us and many come back to visit or for work experience.

As Governors we have three core functions which support the school:

  • Setting the strategic direction of the school
  • Creating robust accounting systems and holding the school to account
  • Ensuring financial probity

All this is underpinned by our well-integrated and inclusive Christian ethos that quietly pervades everything we do.
