Governors

Governors are an integral part of the leadership and management of the school. It is both a privilege and a responsibility to serve as a member of a school’s Governing Body.

At Swainby and Potto Church of England (Aided) Primary School and Ingleby Arncliffe Church of England (Aided) School the Governing Bodies work with the head teacher to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction. Governors offer support and challenge to the head teacher, striving to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to reach their full potential. The Governors also oversee the financial performance of the school making sure that its money is well spent.

As Governors in Church of England (Aided) schools, we have a responsibility to ensure that the school’s distinctive Christian foundation is sustained and developed. The work of foundation governors is crucial in this respect. As aided schools, the foundation governors form the majority group on the Governing Body. Nominated through the Parochial Church Councils (PCCs) of the local parish churches and endorsed by the Diocese of York, these Governors work to ensure that the life of the school is rooted in the Christian ethos, enabling a working environment where spirituality is central to the well being of individuals and the community as a whole. Foundation governors also have overall responsibility for religious education and collective worship. (You can find the policies for these two areas of the curriculum on this website.) The remaining governors include one representative from the Local Authority, one staff governor and the head teacher. Two further Governors are Parent Governors, elected by parents and carers of children in the school.

As Governors of Church of England (Aided) Primary Schools, we are also the employers and act as our own admission authority.

Governors are committed to ensuring that the schools are places where all feel welcome. Although we are small village schools, our close partnerships with our local parish church and communities enable us to enjoy the benefits of belonging to a big family.
