Our Governors

At Gerrards Cross CE School we have a strong, committed and well trained Governing Body. We work closely with the head teacher and senior leadership team to ensure that there are outstanding provision of learning opportunities for the children both now and in the future.

The full board meets at least three times a year as well as holding termly committee meetings. Each governor has specific roles, to monitor the operation of the school and review outcomes for children. Governors have the opportunity to go into the school and meet with staff and pupils and they regularly attend the many special events taking place within the school.

Our key functions are:

* to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

* oversee the financial performance of the school

* to monitor and evaluate the progress the school is making towards achievement of the school strategic plan

* be a source of challenge and support to the headteacher

Our school seeks to provide an engaging, challenging and inspiring education in an environment where every individual is valued, nurtured and celebrated. With a firm foundation of Christian values, we share a vision of excellence which enriches today and equips for tomorrow.

Leanne Tilley, Chair of Governors,  can be contacted via the school office or by emailing

The Governors send out an annual questionnaire to parents which is analysed and the results fed into discussions in committees. We are delighted with the high percentage of questionnaires that are returned by parents and with the thoughtfulness of their constructive comments. Further documentation about governance including our accounts can be found under the 'Statutory Information' tab of this website.
