Governors

Governor Meetings:

The full governing body meets six times a year. There are two committees that support the work of the governing body and they also meet six times a year: Standards Committee and Resources Committee.

All governors are required to sit on at least one committee. In addition governors are encouraged to attend workshops, seminars and training sessions run by the West Gloucestershire Support Partnership and Local Authority.

The Chair of Academy Trust and the Clerk to Academy Trust can be contacted via the school address or email to:

chair@severnbanks.gloucs.sch.uk

clerk@severnbanks.gloucs.sch.uk

Clerk to the Governing Body: Mrs C Smith. The Governors endeavour to ensure the present and future welfare of our school. To this end they attend regular training events to keep abreast of all new initiatives and requirements. All governors make visits during the school day, and those who have time available take on a more active role in school activities.
