We are extremely lucky to have exceptionally supportive governors, who have the children's best interests and the mission of the school at their heart. The main School Governing Body meet at least four times a year, however committee meetings take place every half term. All Governors work together for the good of the school, ensuring that decisions are in line with current legislation and expectations. They support the Head teacher in monitoring, planning ahead, raising standards, budgetary control, prioritising needs and ensuring the smooth running of the school continues to cater well for the children of St Thomas of Canterbury School.
Our Governing Body consists of a body of people who speak and act on behalf of the key groups in our school; the parents, the staff, the Local Authority and the parish. Mr M. Quinn is our Chair of Governors
These people, some who are appointed, some who are elected, meet regularly throughout the year to discuss matters relating to Curriculum, Finance, Staffing, Health and Safety, Ethos and Admissions. All Governors serve for three years.
Each Governor also liaises with specific subject leaders in monitoring specific subjects – these are known as Link Governors and report back to the full Governing Body on their findings.
We hope that any issues you may have can be dealt with by the Headteacher, however, if you would like to contact one of the Governors, please leave a note with School Reception.
