St Peter’s Church of England Middle School is an academy within the family of the Oxford Diocesan Schools Trust (ODST). The Local Governing Body (LGB) has delegated authority from ODST in relation to St Peter’s Church of England Middle School. Our school has members of the Local Governing Body (LGB).
Eight of the LGB member positions are Foundation Governors (which usually includes our local vicar) appointed by ODST Directors.
The Head of School is a Governor, ex-officio, appointed on account of office. There are two Parent Governors and one Staff Governor, who may be a member of teaching staff or non-teaching staff. Both Parent Governors and Staff Governor are elected members. A Parent Governor may become a Foundation Governor, but they cannot be counted in both categories.
The Local Governing Body meets at least once every term, but often much more frequently than this. Various sub-committees such as Finance and Premises and the Curriculum, Standards and Wellbeing Committee meet regularly and report back at full governing body meetings. We have individual Governors with particular responsibilities, such as SEND and Safeguarding. Further information about our Governors and the work they do is below.
Opportunities to meet the governors
There are several occasions during the year such as Parents’ Evenings, Open Evenings and New Parents’ Evenings when parents can meet with members of the Governing Body.
Any parent who has any queries concerning their child’s education should discuss these with the school first. If they feel unable to resolve an issue after having discussed it with the school, they should write to the Chair of Governors, care of the Clerk to the Governors at the school office.
As Governors, we expect to see St Peter’s continue to develop and provide high quality education and care to our students as part of the Windsor community of schools.
