All Saints Church of England Primary School joined the Ridgeway Education Trust (RET) on 1 November 2023, as an academy school in part of the wider Multi Academy Trust (MAT). 

Ridgeway Education Trust is run by a Board of Directors which has ultimate responsibility for running each academy within its structure and for setting the vision for schools within the MAT. You can find out more about Governance in the Trust by clicking this link. Each school retains its own Local Governing Body which includes representatives from the Church, staff, parents and members of the local community appointed for their particular skills and experience. Directors and Governors are appointed for a term of four years.

The schools in the MAT share the core values of high quality teaching and learning, respectful relationships and an inclusive community. These underpin the Trust’s continuing development and support its commitment to excellence.

The Local Governing Body of All Saints meets as a whole at least five times a year and is formed by up to 12 Governors. Its purpose is to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school and to hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils.

Our Local Governing Body currently comprises the following Governors:

The Governing Body monitors the school in light of OFSTED’s four key performance criteria, reviews performance data, reviews and updates school and RET policies and carries out classroom visits to develop members’ knowledge and understanding of the school. It meets five times a year, with additional meetings with the senior leadership team to discuss data and targets as appropriate.

Governor classroom visits are made throughout the year, to observe teaching practices, to help governors to become better acquainted with the curriculum and help them in their role as a 'critical friend' to the school's senior management team.  Visits are structured around subjects to build understanding and improvements in the way each subject is taught across the school.

The roles and responsibilities of all Governors, including the specific role of the Chair of Governors and Vice Chair of Governors can be found here.
