Meet the Governors

Governing Body:

Clifton Hampden Church of England Primary School and Culham Parochial Church of England Primary School are both part of the Thames Bridge Church of England Federation. The Federation has a single governing body consisting of twelve governors representing parents, teachers, local government, the Church and the local community. They all work in a voluntary capacity and their time and expertise is greatly appreciated. The powers and duties of governors are prescribed by law and they endeavour to ensure that schools conduct their affairs in accordance with all relevant legal obligations.

 

Aim:

The main aim of the Governing Body is to promote the welfare and development of the school so that a caring, stimulating and secure environment exists, within which the children’s learning can be fostered. Governors are responsible for: ensuring that the National Curriculum is delivered; monitoring the school’s performance and progress; ensuring the effective use of school funds; and setting the direction for future development. Governors are responsible for recruiting the Head Teacher and are often involved in staffing decisions, such as the selection of new staff. The governors also monitor: the condition of school premises; health & safety procedures; and safeguarding.

 

Governors view their role as one of partnership with parents and teachers for the ultimate benefit of all the children attending both schools in the Federation.

Register of Pecuniary Interests:

No financial or business interests have been declared by the governors and none of the governors are related to members of staff.
