Governors @ CCJ
Ofsted 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."
The role of our School Governors is to provide ‘challenge and support’ to the leadership of the school. One way they do this is to focus on ‘Being Strategic’ in relation to those things that make a difference to children’s learning. The Full Governing Body meets six times a year. It focuses on medium and longer term strategic planning and scrutinises the detailed work of the three committees, outlined below.
Our Headteacher, Pippa Osborne, attends all committee meetings. Our Deputy Head, Alex Desmond, is an Associate Member and also attends all meetings alongside our Clerk, Frances McMillan.
Curriculum Committee: The members are Julian Kendell (committee Chair & Pupil Premium Governor), Anthony Snell (committee Vice Chair & Safeguarding Governor), Sophie Flecken (Special Educational Needs & Disabilities Governor), Mark Brindle (Curriculum) and Laura Love (staff member). The Committee look at all aspects of our curriculum, pupil attainment and Safeguarding.
Finance Committee: The members are Daniel Welch (committee Chair), Claire Edmunds (Chair of Governors), Barry Shore (Health & Safety Governor, committee Vice Chair), Adoela James-Lawal & Kate Thatcher (staff member). The committee is responsible for all aspects of the financial management of the school.
Foundation & Ethos Committee: The members are Reverend Paul Peterson (committee Chair), Mike Bull (committee Vice-Chair) and Kirsten Rendall (staff member). Aidan Watson will be joining get committee in December 2020 after his appointment is ratified by the Diocese of Bristol. 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 help to develop our communication strategies.
The Head Teacher and Deputy Head attend all committee meetings.
