Governors Information

The Governing Body aims to be as approachable as possible. Each of the half-termly governors meetings has an agenda item specifically for issues raised by parents as it is always helpful for the governors to receive opinions and suggestions.

If you have anything you feel should be addressed by the governors please contact the clerk, Jo Huxter, on this email address: governors@salwayash.dorset.sch.uk

Please note: The above email address contacts governors only and not the school office. Please do not use it for general communication with the school. If you wish to contact the school office please continue to use office@salwayash.dorset.sch.uk

Please be aware that minutes of the governors meetings are available should you wish to see them.

Please see the Home page for the most recent Governor Newsletters, or click here to see the full list.

As governors we pride ourselves on having an in depth knowledge of our school, from it's ethos and policies down to the everyday working of the staff and children.
We have taken time to create an overview of the most important questions we must ask ourselves and that we must expect of our school. This is entitled 'Know Your School' and is attached below.
 
Our school governors use an online system known as the Governors Virtual Office (GVO) to store documentation and policies in an accessible and organised manner. We believe this helps the governing body to function efficiently.
The above document is currently being updated to reflect September 2017 changes.
 
As required, the document below shows which governors have attended which meetings. This will updated with further meetings as and when they occur.
