A WELCOME FROM THE CHAIR OF GOVERNORS

On behalf of the Governing Board I would like to welcome you to All Saints Church of England VC Primary School.

Together with the Head and Staff, we are committed to providing the best possible quality of education for every child.

We are proud of our school and seek to encourage high standards by providing a safe and caring environment in which to learn.

We work together with the Head and staff to provide strategic direction for the school.

The Local Governing Board meets 6 times a year.

We hold regular meetings and each governor has special responsibilities. A governor is linked to each curriculum subject or area of work to help the Head maintain our very high standards. We conduct school monitoring visits and we ensure that our very special ethos is maintained, we are indeed 'a family inspired to learn'.

The composition of our Governing Board is set out on these pages together with our current serving Governors profiles.

Details of any vacancies will be shown on our website or are available from the Head. Please do contact us if you would like any further information about our school.

Mrs Kathryne Lee - Foundation Governor

Kath has been a Foundation Governor at All Saints since 2006. Over the years, Kath has sat on both Teaching and Learning and Finance and Strategy sub committees and is currently Chair of Governors. She is also a member of the All Saints Church congregation and her daughter attended All Saints School until July 2010. Kath has stayed on as Governor as she is passionate about education, believing that children learn best in a safe and happy school environment. Kath also works full time as a Payroll and Benefits Manager for a care company in Somerset. If she has any spare time, Kath enjoys helping with her daughter’s pony and spending time with family.

Reverend Noel Hector - Foundation Governor

Father Noel has been Rector of All Saints church and a Foundation Governor of the school since 2003. He serves on the full governing body, the Teaching and Learning committe, as well as many of the appointment panels. He takes a weekly service in church for the school as well as special services for festivals and end of year and is sometimes invited into class to support any class based learning about the church or RE. He also helps co-ordinate the assembly themes for the school year. He has one child currently attending the school and so is frequently seen as parent rather than as Rector!

Mrs C Heysham- Parent Governor- Chair of Teaching and Learning.

Clare has been a Parent Governor at All Saints since joining the school in September 2012. She sits on the Teaching and Learning Committee and is the link Governor for Mathematics.

Mr Adam Stewart - Co-Opted Governor

Adam joined All Saints board of governors in 2016 and sits on the Finance and Strategy committee. School age siblings and a young family of his own brought standards of education into sharp focus for Adam and persuaded him to get involved as a Co-Opted Governor. Having lived in North Somerset for most of his life Adam returned to the area after completing a masters degree in 2006. He has worked in the public sector for 11 years, most recently as an Operations Manager and Programme Director. Adam hopes that his strategic background and business acumen will be of great benefit to All Saints and is enjoying developing his knowledge and understanding of the school, the education system and pedagogy in general.
