A message from the Chair of Governors....
Here at Saint John's we have a commitment to our pupils to provide them with the best possible education within a safe, secure, stimulating and happy environment. We come from a variety of backgrounds and have a wide range of skills and experience. Our role is to support the school, challenge the school's leadership team to keep to high standards and also monitor performance.
Our structure is made up of different "types" of Governors - Parent Governors, a Local Authority Governor, Foundation Governors, Co-opted Governors, one Headteacher and one Staff Governor.

The work of the Governing Body is to ensure high standards of achievement for all children and young people in the school by:
- Providing strategic leadership
- Holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
We make decisions about the school through the Governing Body and are supported by committees for:
- Visions & Values
- Curriculum & Standards
- Resources (Finance, Staffing and Premises)
The Full Governing Body meets six times per year. The above committees meet termly and individual governors take a lead role in monitoring subjects. There are also specialist roles for governors, such as Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and also Safeguarding. They meet with staff regularly to discuss progress, resources and future plans.

What else do we do?
We feel it is important to get involved in as much of the school life as possible by attending school events and liaising with the school's PTFA. We attend courses run regularly by the Local Authority and occasionally nationally.
Would you like to get involved?
A governor's term of office is usually four years and there are opportunities to become a governor when vacancies arise. Following recent changes in the law the Governing Body can now co-opt governors from any background if they have skills that would be helpful. They can also elect associate governors (non-voting) to assist with various projects for shorter periods of time. If you would like to find out more about the Governing Body and/or the governance of the school, please get in touch via the school office.
*The Foundation Governors are appointed by the Gloucester Diocesan Board of Education after consultation with the Parochial Church Council. (PCC) of the Parish of St Luke and St John. Foundation Governors are people who are:
- Communicant members of the Church of England or members in good standing of another Christian Church who are recommended to the Diocese by the PCC.
- Interested in the school and the welfare of the pupils and staff and prepared to attend governors’ meetings and serve on committees.
- Prepared to keep themselves informed and up to date by visiting the school, by reading reports, undergo training and attend meetings.
- Prepared to make the governorship of the school their priority.
If you are interested, please contact Catherine Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a very active Parent Teacher and Friends Association (PTFA) working closely with the School to raise funds and organise social events such as the Christmas and Summer fairs, quiz evenings for parents and discos for the children. We are a registered charity and hold regular committee meetings where all are welcome.

- Zoe Forbes (Chair)
- Andy Bates (Treasurer)
- Gemma Bridgman

We also give an annual class fund of £200 to each year group to subsidise the cost of a class trip or other activity.
