Our Governors

You can find out here who your school governors are, what they do and how governors are elected and appointed.

School governors have a vital role in making sure all pupils receive the highest standard of education possible. They have specific duties given to them by law including:
  • agreeing school development priorities
  • setting school targets
  • agreeing school policies
  • making sure the curriculum is balanced
Governors provide a headteacher with support and advice, sharing in formulating the school’s aims and vision.

Every year the governing body reviews its instrument of government, code of conduct and terms of reference which outline the structure of the governing body and its roles and responsiblities. The total number of governors on the All Saints' CofE Junior School and Emscote Infant School Federated Governing Body shall not exceed 18. The term of office for all governors is four years. One parent governor can be elected from each school, and foundation governors shall be appointed by the Coventry Diocesan Board of Education in consultation with All Saints' Church council. The incumbent of the parish holds the office of foundation governor ex-officio (another foundation governor shall be appointed to act in place of the ex-officio foundation governor in the event that governor is unable or unwilling to take the office).

There are three standing committees, each with its own terms of reference; Teaching and Learning, Community and Resources. There is also a SIAMS (Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools) committee and a Pay committee.
