At St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School we have two Foundation Governors who are appointed by the York Diocese.
Mrs Glynis Ashford Mrs Ann Watson
The role of the Foundation Governor is to ensure that the schools distinctive Christian character and values lie at the heart of the school in its development and achievement of the whole child. They ensure that key events in the church year are celebrated by the school and embedded in the everyday life of the school community. They monitor impact of provision and talk to the children as well as teachers about the ethos of the school. As Foundation Governors they articulate the Christian vision of the school and oversee the ‘well-being’ of the whole school community.
