Stow-on-the-Wold Primary school has a very pro-active governing body. We have members of the community, parents, staff of the school and Local Authority representatives on the board who all work as part of a team to ensure that the school maintains its high standards of teaching and learning.

As a governing body we have the responsibility of being critical friends to the school, we make decisions regarding the allocation of budgets, health and safety and most importantly the standards in delivery of the curriculum.

The full governing body meets six times per academic year and the sub committees, who meet termly, are Standards, Health & Safety, Premises and Finance and Personnel.

Each governor is assigned a role within the sub-committees and also a subject to overview.

Parent governors are elected by parents of the school.

Governors In School!

Every governor plays their part in school life! Individual governors support the school not only by being a governor but also within the wider community. This may be by volunteering their time to listen to readers, driving the villager bus to and from swimming or accompanying pupils on their class trips.

Twice a year the full governing body comes into the school for a full day to fully immerse themselves in school life. This includes assembly, wake and shake, lesson observations and school lunches! We then spend time out in the playground talking to the children and playing with them. After a lovely morning learning, a full governing body meeting takes place in the afternoon with a pupil's voice as part of the agenda.

Quotes from governor visit days!

"I was engaged by a group of lower-juniors, who had made up a poem about for me and wanted to perform it and then by another group who wanted to show me a dance they had made up. The point is that the children, none of whom really know me, showed excellent social skills and were very at ease engaging in conversation with me. I was also obliged to enter a skipping race... I didn't win!! As ever, an enjoyable and rewarding day in many ways, please pass on my thanks to all of the staff."

"The outdoor learning area of Class 1 was well used, with lots of resources which were easily accessible to all of the children. It was obvious that this outdoor area is a much needed resource for the children, allowing them the freedom and space to learn in an interactive way."

"The children clearly enjoyed lessons which were presented in a lively and engaging way. The content of the lessons was challenging whilst not beyond the capabilities of the children. It was a delight to be included in the lessons."
