Village Saints Partnership Local Governing Body 

 

Governors are a voluntary body of people who guide and support the strategic direction of the school. They are members of the school team and their contribution to the running of the school is highly valued.

 

The Chair of Governors can be contacted through the school office. 

Contact number: 01366 501050

 

School Governing Body

The instrument of government states that the governing body shall consist of:

  • 2 parent governors
  • 1 local authority governor
  • 1 staff governor
  • 1 headtecaher
  • 2 co-opted governors

 

The role of the governing body is a strategic one, its key functions are to:

  • Set the aims and objectives for the school
  • Set the policies for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Set the targets for achieving those aims and objectives
  • Monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of its aims and objectives
  • Be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher (a critical friend)

Governors were praised for their increasingly active role in school empowered by the new Chair, during our SIAMS Inspection in March 2019.

Declared Interests- Parent of a child at the school

I volunteered to become a governor at All Saints Academy as I wanted to be involved in my son’s education and was really keen to help the school achieve some of its aims, specifically around the learning and development of children.

I am currently a Senior Project Manager for a software company and I hope to bring some of my attention to detail to the role of governor and hope to support the school in being a “critical” and “supportive eye”.

Finally I want to contribute to my local community more and hope I can do this by being part of the governing body.

I am really pleased to be part of the Governing body to offer my support to the future development of the school.  I applied to be a Governor as I am looking forward to being part of my son’s school experience as he starts school in 2019. I hope to transfer some of my experience from senior communications and marketing roles within the training and further education sector. I’ve been involved in opening new specialist schools where I’ve had exposure to the strategic and educational elements of school life that I will use to benefit our school. I hope this will help to continue shaping the best learning experience for our children and the best working environment for our staff.

I am excited to be part of this new Governance Team and hope I can contribute by supporting and enhancing the Village Saints Partnership. My Son started his education Journey in 2018 and I am resolute in my support of him, his friends, teachers and the wider School Community.

I have specialised in various fields of protective security and am currently employed in the training environment. I hope my ability to think outside the box, adapt and overcome problems and hardship in high pressure situations will compliment a strong team.

Declared Interests- Parent of children in the school 

As a parent of two children attending the Village Saints Partnership I volunteered to become a governor as I wanted to be involved with both my sons' education and that of all the pupils that attend both academies. 

I am currently the Lead Cook for St Martins so I already look after their nutritional needs on a daily basis. I also have a great interest in the SEN side of education and the welfare of all the children. 

I hope to be of great help and support to the schools and help them achieve the highest standards possible for each individual child and also the staff.

Declared Interests- Parent of children in the school 

As a mum of two boys at St Martin School I feel privileged to be part of the new dynamic governing team for these schools.  I have six years of previous governing experience to build on and share, and a passion that these schools continue to provide a broad and exciting education. I understand the challenges that small rural schools face and look forward to supporting the staff in their endeavour to nurture every pupil in their school journey.

Prior to living in West Norfolk I worked in Radio Production for the BBC for 9 years.

Declared Interests- Parent of children in the school 

I have volunteered to become a governor at the schools since my children have moved to St.Martin in the second term of 2019. I was previously a governor volunteering for a local academy with 3 village schools under the governing body. I am very interested in EYFS and KS1 and the overall approach to education that schools take and how we can grow and adapt in order to meet the needs of the children. 

I have been a Hotel Manager for a large local hotel for over 10 years and manage a team of 45 staff. I hope to bring my management expertise, high standards and attention to detail and also to focus on emotional well-being in the school and I hope I can offer challenge and support in equal measure.

Declared Interests- Parent of child in the school 

I have volunteered to become a Governor at The Village Saints Academy as I feel it is important to support local schools in helping them to provide a structured learning environment for every pupil. I have an interest in not only the academic development of children through the curriculum but also values and skills positively reinforced within the school environment. I think it would be on most parents' agenda to hope for their child to be able to confidently move to the next phase of the academic journey armed with all they have been taught. As a parent, this is most certainly my hope for my son who is a pupil at St Martin's. 

I am a trained Management Accountant, now based in King's Lynn, having recently moved from supporting a Tornado contract to out of service based at RAF Marham for 10 years. I bring with me analytical skills, integrity, challenge, teamwork and a keen eye to detail. I hope my professional experience will be of great benefit in supporting the Governing body of the Academy.
