An Introduction from the Chair of Governors
My name is Nicola Cooper, I am the Chair of Governors at Raynsford Church of England Academy. I have a teaching and business background and I have a daughter at Raynsford. I have been a Governor in three schools.
At Raynsford Church of England Academy we have 14 Governors on the Governing Body. We work as a Full Governing body and we also have a number of sub-committees, for example - the Finance and Personnel Committee, the Health and Safety Committee and the Teaching and Learning Committee. Governors are from the local community, we are made up of representatives from the staff, parents, Diocese and community. We all strive to make a positive contribution to the education of pupils at Raynsford, by monitoring and raising school standards within the context of a Christian ethos.
The Full Governing Body has three core strategic functions –
- Setting vision, ethos and strategic direction at Raynsford Church of England Academy
- Ensuring accountability
- Providing both support and challenge.
