Governors

Welcome to our Governors' Page

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

On behalf of all the Governors, welcome to All saints Babbacombe Church of England School. This is your School and your input is vital and welcomed. Please do not hesitate to contact the School with your comments, suggestions and ideas. Only with us all working together can we give your children the best possible start in life.

 

We are very proud of our School. We have strong links with All Saints Church in Babbacombe, which supports the School’s Christian ethos, enriching the life of our community. Father Paul and other Church members, including myself, provide positive support to the School by serving on the LGB, striving to ensure the School provides the best possible education for all the pupils in our care within this Church of England School.

 

We are part of St Christopher’s Multi Academy Trust (MAT). As a Church School we have Foundation Governors who are members of the Church, Staff Governors and, vitally, Parent Governors. We have an excellent team with a wide range of skills and experiences. Being a voluntary Governor is a very responsible position as each of us has specific responsibilities for key areas of the School to ensure that we deliver the highest level of service for your children, for you and for the staff. A list of the Governors and their responsibilities can be found on the website.

 

The Head, Mr Nutbeam, is responsible for developing the School’s vision and strategic School Improvement Plan (SIP) and for the day to day running of the School. Our role as Governors is to provide support for Mr Nutbeam and to ensure the necessary resources are available to deliver the SIP, whilst also ensuring compliance with all rules and regulations at MAT, regional and national levels. The safety and well-being of your children is our number one priority. Governors also undertake continuing professional development (CPD) in order to provide the correct advice and support to members of the School. We appreciate the commitment of all our Governors, especially those who work and give up their valuable free time to serve our School.

 

As Governors, we not only take an active role in the life of the School by attending regular meetings and School functions, we also undertake 'Learning Walks' which are linked to the SIP and include visits to classrooms and discussions with staff and children. You can read about these visits by clicking the relevant documents on this page. The minutes from our Local Governing Body meetings and our two committee meetings (Teaching and Learning Committee and Resources Committee) as also published on this page. One of the important tasks we undertake during these meetings is to review School policies to ensure they are up to date and relevant, a list of which you can also access with their term renewal dates; we welcome input from parents/carers, so if you have any comments and/or suggestions regarding these, please email Carolyn Halstead, our Clerk to the Governors (carolyn.halstead@stchristophersmat.org) at least two weeks before the relevant term review meeting.

 

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to assure you of our commitment to delivering the best possible education for your children and ensuring they have as many opportunities to fulfil their potential.

Best wishes
