Welcome to the Governors page of the school's website.
School Governors are one of the countries largest group of volunteers with over 300,000 people contributing to the development and improvement of schools.
Governing bodies represent a cross section of stakeholders and includes members of staff, parents, the local authority and local community.
Governors have 3 core functions:
At Stoke Damerel the Full Governing Body meets approximately 6 times each year helping to set the school's overall aims and ensuring that key areas such as the curriculum, standards of attainment and progress, finance, personnel and the building and site are regularly monitored to ensure value for money and the best possible outcomes for the whole school community.
As well as regular meetings, Governors visit the school and communicate with pupils, staff and parents to help them in their role of monitoring and evaluating what is happening in school and then supporting the school in developing future goals.
