Thank you for visiting the Governors' area of our website.
Governors perform a vital voluntary role in education and a full and diverse governing body is a source of enormous strength to a school. Ampney Crucis C of E Primary School has 12 governors including members of the community, staff and parents. While the governors have different backgrounds and experience, we work together to support and challenge the senior leadership as they strive for the best possible education, learning environment and future prospects for the school's children.
The governors work with staff to oversee the long-term development of the school. Although it is a voluntary role, governance comes with significant expectation of performance and accountability from the government through Ofsted. Governors are responsible for:
Ampney Crucis is an outstanding school with a great team of professional staff and amazing children but we know that all things can improve and we are doing our utmost to ensure that every child has the opportunity to fully realise their potential and talents.
Chair of Governors
The Governing Body consists of 12 members
Associate members are appointed by the governing body. They are appointed because of the specific expertise and experience they can contribute to the effective governance and success of the school and serve on one or more governing body committees. They may also attend full governing body meetings. They are not governors and therefore do not have a vote in governing body decisions, but may be given a vote on decisions made by committees to which they are appointed.
To aid the work of the full governing body (FGB) members serve on one or more of 3 main committees which have delegated authority.
