Welcome to the Prestbury Church of England Governor pages

What do we do?

Our main role is to support and, from a strategic perspective, challenge the Head Teacher and staff; the phrase often used to describe this role is a "critical friend". We work with teaching staff to set targets for learning and pupils' achievements, striving for excellence across the whole spectrum of school life. We monitor how well the school is doing in achieving its targets and where improvements can be made.

As governors our duties include:

Setting stretegic direction, policies and objectives

Approving the school budget and reviewing progress against it

Monitoring and evaluating performance

Ensure the Christian ethos of the school is preserved and developed;

Ensuring that the school is accountable to the children, parents, staff, Local Authority, Diocese and the community it serves

We do not get involved in the day-to-day workings of the school; this is clearly the responsibility of the Head Teacher and his management team.

Who are we?

Prestbury CE Primary School's Governing Body has a diverse mix of experiences with members drawn from parents, staff and the Diocese. This puts us in a strong position to help the school achieve its aim of providing the best possible education for pupils.

There are several categories of governor:

Parent Governors, elected by parents

Staff Governors, elected by the staff

Foundation Governors, appointed by the Diocese

Local Authority Governors, appointed by the Local Authority

We are united by our commitment to provide an outstanding education within a strong Christian framework.

Our governors are all volunteers who give up their time to apply their skills and experience to help support our school. All governors are appointed for a term of four years, and we are part of the largest volunteer workforce in the UK with around 370,000 governor places nationally.

Chair: Mr P Gibbons  (Parent Governor)
