The Governing Body at St Peter's is made up Parents, Church Foundation reprentatives and staff. They visit the school regularly, help on trips and visitis.
Each Year staff and Governors spend a day together planning future developments of the school. Recently we spent a day looking at the schools vision for the future. You can view a powerpoint presentation of the School's vision here.
Last year we went to the Wembworthy Outdoor educction centre in North Devon and spent the day making scultupture, cooking outdoors and taking part in team building exercises!
The chair of the Governing Body is Rev R Charles.
Piece by the vicar:
This school began its life with a church foundation - that is why over half our governors are called Foundation Governors and are appointed by the local Parochial Church Council or the Diocese.
I have to say that we can count ourselves fortunate in this school for many reasons. It is a pleasent building. We might take it for granted sometimes but, when visitors come from the diocese for example, they will tell us that it is one of the best schools in the County, many schools being rather dilapidated as a result of years of neglect.
We are fortunate to have a comitted and loyal Headteacher and staff and not too many staff changes. Our children enjoy a stability that would be the envy of many schools in certain parts of the country.
There is great support from the parents. It is important that children see the influence of home as complementary to the work of the school. Where the school and the home are failing to work together it is all too easy for tensions to develop.
The school and local church have close ties - children attend services regularly as a whole school, particularly at Harvest, Christmas and Ascensiontide. A regular monthly family service gives families a chance to worship together in an informal setting.
