The Governing Body

 

The Governing Body is responsible for raising school standards by fulfilling these responsibilities:

  • Setting the school's vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • 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. 

Our Full Governing Body (FGB) meets once a month during term time. We are volunteers who all share a commitment to improving learning at Great Tew. We represent the school's main stakeholder groups - parents, staff, Local Authority and the community. Essential training builds on the skills governors arrive with. 

Collectively the FGB monitors progress against targets set in the School Development Plan (SDP) - the SDP is at the heart of the school improvement drive. The head teacher, staff and governors identify priorities, key actions and success criteria. 

We currently have 9 governors:

Jane Zibarras, Co-opted Governor and Chair

Naomi Roberts, Parent Governor and Deputy Chair

Lucy Miles, Headteacher

Peter Collins, Parent Governor

Hugo Brown, Parent Governor

Viv Bennett, Local Authority Governor 

Lauren Nimmo, Staff Governor
