The Governing Board Prayer
As Governors in a Church of England Primary school we always open our meetings in prayer and close our meetings with The Grace.
St James' Lanehead VA Church of England Primary School Governors
The Governing Board meet at least once a term and visit the school. In consultation with the Headteacher they are responsible for the Finance, Curriculum, Management and Discipline of the school. They have regular full meetings and work with the Headteacher, Diocese and LEA to enable the school to perform its functions.
The Governing Board provide challenge and support to ensure the school is run efficiently and all policies and practices are in line with the trust deed of the school and fulfill statutory obligations. Governors are re-elected every four years.
The Governing Board promote the British Values and Christian values of the school.
Attendance at meetings is paramount and governors are expected to give their voluntary time to the school.
This academic year the clerk to the The Governing Board Chair and Vice Chair of Governors monitor the attendance at Governing Body meetings. This information will be published on the school website.
