Governing Board at St Alban’s

The Governing Board at St Alban’s C.E Primary and Nursery re-constituted in September 2015 in line with statutory guidelines.

In September 2015, the Board decided to re-organise with the main purpose being to ensure all governors were skilled in all aspects of governance and fully understood their roles and responsibilities.

The Board meets seven times a year. Every meeting has a very clear focus, as identified by the calendar, to ensure the board is able to be strategic in its approach and challenge effectively.

A Resources Committee has been set up to address key issues related to finance, premises and personnel. The Headteacher, chairperson, an experienced governor with finance expertise, and the school finance officer sits on the committee.

Performance related pay is discussed at the Resources Committee at the end of every academic year.

The Governing Board has a clear understanding of its roles and responsibilities. Members keep their knowledge up to date by attending training and reading and know that they form part of the leadership of the school.
