School Governors

School governors are people from the school’s wider community who wish to make a positive contribution to the children’s education.

The full governing body’s main responsibility is to give clear strategic leadership in order that at FJS we provide a stimulating and purposeful learning environment in which the children develop their full potential both in their relationships with others and in the knowledge, understanding and skills required to live happy and fulfilling lives now and in the future.
Governors are the largest volunteer force in the county and help to uphold school standards through their three key roles of:
  • setting strategic direction;
  • ensuring accountability;
  • monitoring and evaluating school performance.
Full Governing Body Constitution

The Governing body is made up of the following:
  • 6 Parent Governors, elected by the parents of the children in the school.
  • 1 Head Teacher Governor.

School Profile
Following the passage of the Education Act 2005, governing bodies are no longer required to hold an annual meeting for parents or produce a governors' annual report to parents. The report has been replaced by the school profile, which is designed for schools to communicate with parents about the school's progress, priorities and performance. Profiles are completed and published online.
