All Saints CofE School

Governing Body

Overview

All Saints' School, like all church primary schools, is run by a board of local people including representatives of the church, Local Authority, staff and parents. The principle aim of the Governing Body is to ensure the school provides its children with a safe environment in which to learn and it helps them to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Working closely with the Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team, the Governing Body is responsible for:

  • Overseeing the direction and development of the school
  • Contributing to whole school strategy, using school information and data 
  • Setting the budget and monitoring expenditure
  • Monitoring standards
  • The scrutiny and development of policies and procedures

The Full Governing Body meets twice a term and governors sit on sub-committees which meet more regularly throughout the term. Governors regularly visit the school. A register of attendance for governors at both full governing body and committee meetings is taken and published on this page. 

If you wish to contact the Chair of Governors, you can leave a message with the school office or email direct to: chair@aspnw2.barnetmail.net

Governors' Learning Walks

Governors are regularly in school. At least termly Governors conduct 'Learning Walks' to observe teaching and learning in school. Priority is given to English, Maths, Science and Religious Education but Governors are also keen to look at a range of issues. After each visit a report is produced and then shared with the school. Any action points are then acted upon and followed up at subsequent meetings. Copies of the Learning Walk reports can be found by clicking on the links below.

I became a governor to support the school and to make a positive contribution towards children's education and our community. I wanted to have a greater insight into how the school works and understand how the curriculum is taught to children. I have good business, organisation and people skills. I welcome challenges, learn fast and I am dedicated to the success of the school.

I became Priest in Charge at All Saints' Church in October 2017. I am passionate about providing the best education for all children in the local community. Giving children the ability to engage intelligently with their own faith and that of others, as well as developing themselves as spiritual beings is central to the ethos of a Church of England school. As the local parish priest I am particularly involved in RE and Collective Worship and am here to provide pastoral support to students, family and staff of the school. As a former Aerospace Engineer I am also keen to encourage children in maths, science and problem solving. I also have a daughter who started at the school when we moved into the parish.

I joined the school in 2014 as a Foundation Governor, appointed by the LDBS. I am an active member of All Saints' Church. I am originally from Burma and I have also lived and studied in Auckland, New Zealand. I have a Bachelor of Finance and International Business degree. I am a business administrator and work for a small software company. I provide administration, day to day financial, logistical and testing support. I have two children at the school which gives me a great view of both the learning and governing the school. I am willing to help our school pupils and community at All Saints’. I have always had a keen interest in the school community and in my role as a governor I have gained a deeper understanding of the issues that impact on the running of the school. I feel privileged, therefore, to be able to support the effective running of All Saints’. I enjoy being a school governor and believe that every child deserves a safe place to learn.

I am a Foundation Governor, appointed by All Saints' Church where I am an active member. I have worked in education for over 30 years and have been the manager of a pre-school for the last 24 years - which was recently rated as outstanding by Ofsted. The well being of children and their families is an absolute priority to me. Being a Governor gives me the opportunity to contribute my relevant skills in supporting the Governing Body to ensure the school's values are reflected and high expectations are met.

I was appointed as a Foundation Governor in 2017 by West Barnet Deanery Synod. Equal access education is something I firmly believe in and act as a governor to help All Saints' School reach the highest possible level of achievement in all areas. I chair the Religious Education, Collective Worship and Admissions committee: areas which I think are key to developing a great school community and establishing the foundation for success in students and school. As a professional musician, I also have a special interest in music and the arts. I believe that everyone should have access to performing arts and that they can offer great educational benefits. On this basis, I liaise with school staff to help further the Arts within All Saints’.

I have been teaching at All Saints' since 2009, and have held various positions as class teacher, middle leader, RE coordinator and cover teacher.  With my teaching experience and knowledge of the school, I believe I can provide the link, and also be the voice, of the school staff on the governing body. As a member of the Governing Body I am committed to supporting the governors and the Headteacher in taking our school forward and achieving the best possible outcomes for all children. I hope that in being a Governor, I may be able to have a positive influence where it counts.
