The governing body of St Mark’s Primary school, under the direction of the Chair of Governors Mr Mark Day, 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 Local Governing Committee meet together six times a year for meetings that are held in the evening. Governors become a member of the Pay and Renumeration committee and Christian Distinctiveness/Ethos committee. Governors are linked to an area with the School Development Plan, in order that they can support the Senior Leadership Team.
