Governors at CCJ

Ofsted (November 2019) said:

"Governors have played their part... asking the right questions of school leaders and keeping them on their toes. Parents agree that this school is very well led and managed."

Curriculum Committee: The members are Christine Falco (committee Chair and SEND Governor), Mark Brindle (committee Vice-Chair), Paul Graham (Pupil Premium Governor), Anna Cordle and Kathryn Davis. The Committee, together with the Head Teacher, scrutinise all aspects of our curriculum and pupil progress and attainment.

Finance Committee: The members are Jennifer Nisbett (Committee Chair), Adeola James-Lawal (committee Vice -Chair), Claire Edmunds (Chair of Governors), Phillipa Devey and Christopher Ellis. The committee, together with the Head Teacher, oversees the financial management of the school.

Foundation & Ethos Committee: The members are Reverend Paul Peterson (committee Chair), Julia Watt  (Vice Chair), Isobel Sarson (Safeguarding Governor) and Kat Wallbridge (Staff Governor). Foundation Governors ensure the school stays true to its Church Foundation status through ensuring our Ethos and Values are translated into real and meaningful experiences for children. They also oversee all aspects of pupil and staff welfare including attendance and behaviour and safeguarding.

In line with government aims, CCJ has regard to the extent to which our governing board reflects the diversity of our school population. The ethnicity of our current board is 93% White British and 7% Black.
