Welcome to our Governors’ section. 

On behalf of the Governors of Toynton All Saints Primary School, I would like to offer a warm welcome to parents, carers, children and their families. Toynton All Saints Primary is a Good school as graded by Ofsted in September 2017.


The school ensures that each child is nurtured and supported in their academic learning, development as individuals and understanding of local and national communities. All of our governors are approachable and are always happy to speak and to listen. We look forward to meeting you within our friendly school community.

About the Governance:

Governing bodies are the strategic decision-makers and vision-setters in every school. They play a vital role in ensuring the best possible education for every child, by creating robust accountability for school leaders. 


Our Governing Body has 3 core functions supported by a School Development Plan:

  1.  Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  2. Holding the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school, its pupils and the performance management of staff. 
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure that the money is well spent. 


We have a Governing Body that meets 6 times each year, and The Resources committee who meet 3 times a year. The focus of the Resources committee involves finance, staffing, safety and the buildings and grounds of the school. Our main meetings cover items such as learning and teaching in the school, safeguarding, special educational needs and disabilities.
