Annual Governance Statement for the Governing Body of Dinting Church of England (VA) Church of England Primary School

September  2021

On behalf of the Board of Governors, I am delighted to present the Annual Report for the Academic Year 2020/21. This report seeks to inform you about the make-up, roles and actions of the governing body of Dinting Church of England (VA) Primary School over the 2020/2021 academic year.

The role of governors is to ensure that the headteacher and staff know what our community expects from them and to ensure that they deliver this for the children; whilst making sure that the resources that we have available to us are put to the best possible use.

Governors are volunteers who nevertheless give freely of their time, their considerable skills and dedication for the benefit of our children, staff and community. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each member of the Governing Body for all that they continue to do.

Best wishes, 

Catherine Gee
Chair of Governors

Attendance of governors

We value the work of all our governors. We recognise that as volunteers their attendance and participation will naturally be dictated by other aspects of their personal and professional lives. While we accept that their attendance at formal meetings is an important part of their role, we also acknowledge and greatly appreciate the considerable time and dedication given over and above these meetings towards our school’s continuing improvement.
