Every school has a Board of Governors constituted in accordance with its Instrument of Government. Now that St Mary’s has formed a federation with Little Hallingbury School, there is a single Federation Governing Body which is responsible for both schools in the federation. Being Church Schools, the Federation Board of Governors includes representatives of the Church at Parish and Diocesan level, as well as the Local Authority, Parents and Teachers.

The Board of Governors is responsible for the staffing, finance, curriculum, Admissions Policy, special needs and future planning of the School. The Governors work very closely with the Executive Headteacher in making decisions about the life of the School and the well being of all children and staff within the Federation.

The present composition of the Governing Body is as follows:

Previous Governors and date left office:
Martin Tyler 30.09.2018
