The Governors of St Wilfrid's School complete a regular skills audit to make sure they have the right people with professional skills to Governor our school. There are three core functions that Governors are responsible for in order to make St. Wilfrid's the best school it can be.
Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
All our Governors complete induction training and complete 6 courses through the Local Authority to ensure they have a secure knowledge and understanding of Governance. Each Governor is allocated to a committee and also the Full Governing Board to meet termly to monitor the performance and outcomes for the school. They also attend regular events and are linked to a class. For more information about our Governing Board, please see their board in the main reception area.
Governors update-May 2019.
We have appointed two new Foundation Governors, Elizabeth Leyton and Camila Bracken. Both have now attended their first meetings. Another potential Foundation Governor is in the process of completing an application to be approved by The Bishop.
The Governors have a planned day in school on Wednesday 5th June, working with staff and children as part of their action plan. They will be attending lessons, Forest schools, playground time with families, breakfast club and much more! The Governors take a keen interest in the life of the school and work with school leaders to make St. Wilfrid's the best school it can be and aim high!
The Governors will be meeting with the Local Authority in June 2019 to evaluate their effectiveness and monitor how they challenge and support school leaders.
