The Governors of St Bartholomew's CE Primary School aim to ensure the children enjoy a happy and stable school life, with every opportunity to achieve the very best of their abilities.

We are not responsible for the day-to-day running of the school and if you have a complaint, it is important that you follow the formal steps in the Complaints Procedure, to ensure all matters are dealt with fairly and equally.  

We welcome feedback and ideas from the school community. Governors are always present at school events, and those of us who are parents. are usually present at the school gates.  Click here to find out the details of the current Governing Body.

The Purpose of Governance

The purpose of governance is to provide confident, strategic leadership and to create robust accountabiity, oversight and assurance for educational and financial performance.

All boards, no matter what type of schools or how many schools they govern, have three core functions:

- ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

- holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance of staff; and

- overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.
