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 

Sarah Lainchbury, Co-opted Governor
