Parent Governor Vacancy - ring the office for more information

Welcome from the Chair of Governors

Welcome to St Chad's.

St Chad's Church of England Primary and Nursery School's Governing Body has a wide range of members who are involved in all walks of life, the Church, parents, business and public services.  The skills we bring as individuals help us to support the school as a team.  We are committed to our voluntary role and clear of our responsibility.

The role of the governing body is a strategic one with three key functions:

  • ​Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.

We are required to consult with the widest possible range of stakeholders in the school, not just the pupils, parents and staff but also outside agencies, the church and local communities, in the development of and the implementation of the school's policies and school development plan.

We meet formally as a whole group 6 times a year (once per half term).  Smaller groups of us meet more regularly, to progress specific issues and report our activities to the full group for approval.

We are trained to carry out our functions by the Cheshire Governors Support Team and the Diocese, although most of us bring useful skills such as finance, health and safety, management, personnel from our professional lives.

We are actively seeking to strengthen our relationship with parents so we understand their thoughts and aspirations for their children and can build these into our planning.

You will find useful infomation on this website about the Full Governing Body, which includes category of Governor, committee membership, linked governorships, terms of office and register of pecuniary/conflict of interest.

If you would like to express an interest in joining our Governing Body when a vacancy becomes available please contact us through the school office at: admin@stchadsce.cheshire.sch.uk or alternatively on 01606 288040.

On behalf of our Full Governing Body I welcome you to our community.
