Governors

Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

The Governing Body of the Federation of Priddy Primary and

St Lawrence’s C of E Schools

 

“Living and Learning Together”

The Federation of Priddy Primary and St Lawrence’s C of E Schools, serves two scenic rural communities in Somerset. The two popular schools are approximately 3 miles apart in the villages of Priddy and Westbury-sub-Mendip. They are surrounded by the beautiful landscape and countryside of the Mendip Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Both schools are very proud of their successful federation, and work closely together providing a nurturing and caring environment and a wealth of opportunities for our children, staff and communities.

 

Who are the federation governors?

School governors play a vital part in the success of schools. They are volunteers, who work with the head and the council to improve standards in their school.

Every school has a governing body, ours is made up as follows

 

 

Governor Type of governor
Rosie Thorner Head Teacher
Lisette Smith Clerk
   
Rev Paula Hollingsworth Foundation 
Lesley Houlton  Co-opted - Chair
Tatiana Storie Local Authority
Lindsay Thomas Staff
Nigel Cowlin Co-opted
Mike Garfield Co-opted
Tim Clements Parent - Vice Chair
Emma Giffard Parent

 

Co opted and Community governors are appointed by other governors as representatives of the wider local community, as business representatives, or because of particular skills that they can bring to the governing body.

Foundation governors are appointed by the Church or Trust which supports the school.

Local Authority governors are appointed by Somerset County Council.

Parent governors have a child at the school and are elected by other parents.

Staff governors work at the school and are elected by other staff.

How does our federation governing body work ?

Each Governing body has a constitution. Detailing how with how it works  and organizes itself. This is discussed and agreed every year at the AGM in September.

What does each governor do ?

Each of the governors is asked to sit on a sub-committee. Each sub committee deals with an aspect of school governance. Most of these committees meet termly; welfare tends to meet as and when required. Each Committee has a term of reference and various policies and procedures it reviews annually. The terms of reference, minutes and policies and procedures are all held in the Priddy School Office. Below is a list of who sits on which committee for Sept 2017-Sept 2018
