Governance has become increasingly central to school life. The Governing body has specific powers and duties, with a particular remit of helping schools provide the best possible education for their pupils by:

* ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

* holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance  of the school and its pupils, and the performance of its staff; and

* overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

All Saints is a Church of England school and its foundation governors are appointed by the Fleet Parish Parochial Church Council or the Diocese. In addition to the duties mentioned above, foundation governors have the role of upholding the Christian foundation of the school and encouraging mutually beneficial links between Church and school.

The FGB meets frequently and exercises many of its duties through the following Committees:   

  • Resources Committee (Joint Chair N. Evans and K. Deane)
  • Curriculum and Standards Committee (Chair A. Daniels)
  • Pay and Personnel Committee (Chair R Howard)

The reports detailing Governor's details, interests and attendance records can be found at the bottom of this page.

Meet our Chair of Governors

Richard Buller

I was employed by Shell International as an intellectual property lawyer for over 35 years working in London, The Hague and Amsterdam.

I have lived in Fleet for 41 years and both of my children received an excellent education at Fleet state primary and secondary schools.

I have been a Governor at All Saints School for over 3 years following serving as a member of the University of Reading’s governing body for 10 years. I was appointed a Governor by Fleet Parochial Church Council where I am Chair of Finance and a member of the Church Rebuilding Team. I am also a Director of Fleet Future. I enjoy sports and am a keen supporter of cricket and rugby.

I feel very strongly that the most important thing we can do is to provide our young children with a challenging education in a safe and loving environment.  As Governors we will do our best to ensure this is the case at All Saints School.

Curriculum Exhibition for Governors

In the summer, our school councillors hosted a curriculum exhibition, talking to governors about our rich project based curriculum.

While the governors enjoyed looking at the project outcomes and listening to the experiences of our children, they reflected on the survey questions in the document above.
