Governors - Governors

The Governing Body

Our Governing Body is the school's accountable body. It approves the budget and examines the school finances. It makes sure the right staff are in the right place and appoints the Headteacher. It sets strategic direction, policies and aims and reviews progress and objectives. It asks the right questions of the senior staff so that the school runs efficiently and provides the best possible education for every child.

As in every school our governing body ensures it has a strong focus on 3 core functions; ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent. Our governors bring a wide range of experience and expertise to the role and consist of representatives from Surrey County Council, Reigate and Banstead Borough Council, parents and the staff. Other members are co-opted for their particular expertise.

Some of the work is delegated to  two sub-committees; Children and Learning and Resources but all governors share a collective responsibility. The full Governing Body meets at least twice per term and a public copy of the minutes is available in school. The governors make regular visits to the school and are represented at many school functions.

Each phase of the school has ‘adopted’ governors who take a particular interest in the work of the classes and visit as often as possible. The Governing Body at Shawley is committed to ensuring that the education provided is of the highest standard and that all the children achieve their potential.

Our School has valued accreditations

What parents are saying about us

Shawley is a caring environment where every child is known to all, even from the early days of the Reception year. The older children are taught to respect the little ones; the little ones know and trust the older ones. Personal and emotional development, as well as academic progression, are intrinsic to the success of this warm, secure school which, although located in the heart of Epsom Downs, retains a "village-like" feel.

John & Glynis Wheeler, Parents

Shawley has given our son the best possible start in school life. All the teachers throughout the school seem to have a real passion and enthusiasm for teaching. The school has an enthusiastic and thriving Fundraising Committee, consistently striving to raise funds for extra equipment and facilities for the children.
