Our Governors

Governing Body Sept 2021 – July 2022

The Schools of St Alphege have an extremely effective and supportive Governing Body. The Governing Body includes elected representatives of parents and teachers as well as representatives of the local authority, community and the Diocese.

The Governors are the immediate lay support for the professional staff of the school. The Governing Body meets once a half-term to discuss strategic decisions and school improvement. Each member of the Governing Body serves for four years and shares, with the headteacher, the responsibility for the running of the school.

They and their committees meet regularly each half-term to make decisions which affect the general policy of the school, the appointment of staff and the management of finances. Governors can only act together, they cannot act individually.

All of our governors are allocated a subject or aspect to which they are paired; this enables governors to have a hands-on understanding of the day-to-day ethos and values of the school. The Diocese of Birmingham and the PCC appoint the Foundation Governors who represent the Founding Trust of the schools. They have a special role to play in serving both school and Church. All governors may be contacted via the school office.
