About the role of Governors

Governors work as a team called the governing body. 

There are 4 types of governor on the board at St Polycarp's, each representing one of the key bodies which support the school:

·         Surrey Local Education Authority

·         The Diocese (Foundation Governors)

·         Staff Governors

·         Parent Governors

The 3 core functions of the governing board are:

          Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

          Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the
              organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff

          Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its
              money is well spent

There are 2 main committees and each one meets once every term:

·         Pupil Experience Committee

·         Finance Committee
