Enjoying Our Learning Together

St Mary’s VC Junior School Governing Body

Our Governing Body is responsible for ensuring that the school provides good quality education. Together with the Head, it sets the school’s aims and policies, and makes decisions on how to spend the budget.  The Head is responsible for day-to-day management of the school, but is chosen by the Governors and works closely with them.


The Governing Body at St. Mary’s is made up of Governors and Associate Members from the community, church, parents and staff.  Each Governor and Associate Member is linked to monitor an area of priority from the School Improvement Plan.


The Full Governing Body meet twice per term.  Each Governor and Associate Member also sits on one of our two committees, which meet termly:


Resources Committee (remit: finance, pay, premises)

Learning & Teaching Committee (L&T) (remit: curriculum, teaching, pupil achievement, human resources)

We pride ourselves on our commitment to, and good communication with, pupils, teachers, staff and parents.  Governors frequently visit the school, publish a termly newsletter and are present at parent consultation evenings.


If you feel you would like to be more involved in the school and are interested in joining the Governing Body at St. Mary’s school, please contact the Chair of Governors via the school office or email admin@stmarys306.herts.sch.uk
