The governing body of St Mark’s Primary school, under the direction of the Chair of Governors Mr Bruce Hartley, is committed to fully supporting the work of the Leadership team and staff to ensure high quality provision and outcomes for the children.
The Governing body, alongside the Senior Leadership team, sets the strategic direction of the school. It ensures accountability by both supporting and challenging the school on academic standards achieved and the guidance and support provided for the children’s well being.
The Full Governing body meet together at least four times a year for evening meetings. Governors also become a member of at least one sub-committee, thereby utilising their individual strengths. Governors are also linked to a subject that they have an interest in or that they have an expertise in, in order that they can support the teacher or member of staff responsible for that subject or area.
