We are recruiting for FOUNDATION GOVERNORS


Could you help support our school?  Do you have 4-5 hours spare each month?

The Cedar Tree Federation, which comprises of Pinhoe C of E Church School and Woodbury C of E Church School, currently have vacancies for three Foundation Governors to serve on the Governing Body.

Foundation Governors play a specific role in ensuring the schools’ Christian character is upheld. Their responsibilities include preserving the links between Church, School and the Diocese, taking an active role in the SIAMS process and ensuring that collective worship and religious education at the schools are appropriately monitored and follow the appropriate guidelines and/or syllabus. Foundation Governors ensure that the Christian ethos of the schools is encouraged throughout their communities and is reflected in their policies and protocols, the curriculum, and activities.  Foundation Governors represent the Church of England and so, whilst it is not essential that all are communicant Anglicans, it is preferred that they demonstrate they have Christian commitment and values.

The responsibility of the Governing Body is collective and Foundation Governors have the same general responsibilities as other governors - that is to have strategic oversight of the schools, to monitor the pupils’ achievement and attainment, to oversee the teaching and learning, to review the staffing patterns and to oversee finances.

Governors are expected to develop a detailed knowledge of the schools and their educational task as well as the school communities as a whole and to be supportive of the schools, its Headteachers and staff. The Governing Body get to know the schools through developing knowledge of key data and information and through focussed visits and attending meetings of the Governing Body and such committees as they are appointed to.

This is an extremely rewarding and valuable role.  If you feel that you would be interested in more information, please contact the school office on 01392 467984 or leave a message at the school reception. Mrs Saim the Executive Head will then be in contact with you.
