Spotlight on… The Governors’ Staffing Committee
The Governor’s Staffing Committee is responsible for making sure the school’s recruitment works smoothly and that we continue to have excellent teachers here at St Mark’s. There have been several staff moves this year, and we have been helping the school’s leadership find the right people to join the school. If you have any questions about Staffing in the school, please do get in touch!
Spotlight on… Standards and Communications
Standards and Communications is one of the committees of the School’s Governing Body. It is responsible for monitoring the performance of the school over the long-term and for ensuring that our school policies are kept up to date. Recently, we reviewed the school’s Internet Safety policy, which can be found on the school website, as well as analysing the SATs results we achieved in July 2018. It is particularly important in this day and age that pupils understand how to use the computers at school and home safely. If you have any questions about long-term trends in the school or any of our policies, please do get in touch!
Spotlight on...The Finance & General Purposes Committee
One of the key roles of the Committee is to be responsible for approving the Budget. They also monitor the policies and procedures for sound budgetary control. The Committee also oversees the Pupil Premium expenditure to ensure effective use of the funds. Additional responsibilities include reviewing Health and Safety issues associated with the building and site. We are currently looking at generating income from other sources.
Spotlight on…The Ethos Committee
The Ethos Committee supports and promotes the school’s Christian ethos, vision and values. The Committee has responsibility to support, advise and challenge on matters relating to the Christian distinctiveness and effectiveness as a Church of England school. We promote links between the school, local parish churches, Parochial Church Council and communities locally, nationally and globally. We monitor and evaluate the content and impact of Collective Worship and Religious Education on our pupils’ learning and SMSC development. If you’d like to find out more about our work or have a voice on our Committee, please contact us!
