Amberley Parochial School is a Voluntary Aided School which means that our Governors have an important role in working with our Headteacher to determine the direction of the school. Our Governors are comprised of a varied group of parents/ex parents and members of the local community who care about the school and how it works best to benefit our children. The Governors bring a variety of skills and backgrounds to help make decisions on matters of staffing, admissions, premises, curriculum, finance and health and safety always remembering the three key roles Governors hold:
To provide a strategic view
To act as a critical friend
To ensure accountability
Our Full Governing Board meet six times a year and is made up of two staff governors, two parent governors, one local authority governor and seven foundation governors as listed below. We occasionally invite people with particular expertise to be associate members of the governing board; their role is to assist and advise the governors in the decision making process.
Our Governing Board is made up of two committees. They are the Performance and Standards committee and the Finance and Resources Committee, both meet regularly and report back to the Full Governors Meetings. The Structure of the committees are listed above.
