St James School Governing Body
The School Governors of St James carry a responsibility for overseeing school affairs on behalf of the Ted Wragg Trust and the community. The Governors are all volunteers who work with the school and other interested parties to try and help them build an inclusive and exciting learning environment for all children who attend the school.
As a member of the Ted Wragg Trust, St James’ Governing Body helps to set the ethos and strategic direction of the school, act as a ‘critical friend,’ engage in self-evaluation work, review data and help plan for the future ensuring high aspirations are maintained. There are 16 of us who work as a team, with nine being appointed by the Ted Wragg Trust. We meet in committees and as a whole group every half term. We are responsible to parents, the Local Authority, the Department for Education and the wider community, making sure the school provides a good quality education and promotes high standards of educational achievement. Parents are essential in our team and we appreciate those who serve as parent governors.
Governors make an essential, though often unseen, contribution to the life of a school. At St James we keep strong, healthy relationships with all staff and the school’s leaders in particular, effectively ensuring that every student can exceed initial expectations in a safe, purposeful, caring environment.
If you would like to be involved in any way we are always glad to hear from you.
Mr. Andy Mulcock
Chair of Governors
The conduct of St James school is under the direction of its governing body in accordance with “The Governors Handbook″.
