Message from our Co-Chairs of Governors
It is with great pleasure that I warmly welcome you to the St Mark’s CE Primary School website, on behalf of the Local Governing Board. We are very proud to have been elected as Co-Chairs of Governors and we have a highly committed, experienced and skilful team of governors working very hard to support our Executive Headteacher and staff. We hold high aspirations for both schools and we want the very best for all children.
The Local Governing Body is responsible for all matters relating to both St Mark’s and Etruscan Primary Schools including teaching and learning, safeguarding, health and safety, staffing, premises and ensuring financial accountability and sustainability. We report to the Board of Trustees for the Orchard Community Trust. The Local Governing Body meets once every half term, while sub-committee meetings consider the more specific areas of staffing, curriculum and finance. We act as a ‘critical friend’, supporting and challenging the Executive Headteacher and leaders.
Should you wish to contact us to discuss any matter further please do so by first contacting our Executive Headteacher, Mrs Michelle Johnstone.
