Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governing Body page of the Allington with Sedgebrook C of E Primary School website.

In our number we have parents, business people, magistrates, teachers, cycling and rugby fanatics with one common goal; that is to see the children of AWS school reach their full potential.
 

This website gives us the opportunity to share more about our work and importantly, hear more of your views. When we have important news to share or need to get your feedback, we will ensure that you are directed to this web page through parent mail.
 

Governors are always keen to hear your views, so please come and speak to us.  Please let school know if you need to get in touch.
 

The Governing Body is a group of people; made up of representatives of parents, school staff, the diocese and the local authority.  Your Governors are: -
Thomas Sang (Chair),  Anne Fleming (Vice),  Fina Martinez-Perez, Reverend Harriet Orridge, Dawn Minckley, Adam Kolbert, Rachel Williams & Jenny Stuart with school support from Leanne Barr, David Drew and Chris Warby.  Our Clerk is Mrs Denise Reed.

 

Our role is to ensure that the school operates effectively and fulfils its aims.  We do this by:

1) Working alongside the head teacher as equal partners to provide a strategic view for the school; setting aims, objectives, principles and targets.

2) Ensuring accountability, which we do through visiting, monitoring and evaluating the implementation of the policies and procedures that have been put in place.

3) Being a ‘critical friend’ of the school; asking challenging questions and celebrating the school’s successes.

We meet as a full governing body every term.
