Our Governors

The school governors, representing parents and staff are appointed to maintain a general oversight of school policies, the curriculum, grounds and buildings, the budget and the general conduct of the school.

The governors act as critical friends whose main aim is to ensure that our children have a challenging and stimulating time at the school and that they receive the best possible education.

Meetings of the full governing body are held monthly to consider a variety of items, and to receive reports from the head teacher concerning the life and work of the school. Sub committees also meet regularly to look at the key areas of the curriculum, finance, personnel and premises.

"I work at Hinkley Point B Power Station and I became a parent governor in 2009 in order to help support my children's education. 
The governors work closely with the school to support it, but also to provide challenge in a constructive way. As governors, we observe the school in action, monitor it's performance and ensure the best use is made of its resources.
I believe that Wembdon St George's is an excellent school that strives to ensure every child is supported and achieves their upmost potential. My son moved up to Haygrove in 2012 and my daughter finishes year 6 in 2014. They have both enjoyed their time at the school and have done well; I want that to continue for other children."​

"I am an Ex-officio foundation governor which means I represent the vicar of St Georges Church and have been appointed by the Archbishop of the Bath and Wells Diocese. I with my husband Andy have been active members of the church since we moved to Bridgwater in 1979 and I have helped run the Sunday morning children`s groups for the last 35 years well as having many other roles in the church, I currently run the toddler group on Thursday mornings.
We have 3 daughters who went to the school and during their time there I was a Parent Governor and later became a Foundation Governor, I am now a very `hands on Grandma` as I look after my 3 grandchildren when our youngest daughter is at work, her 2 daughters are in Key Stage 1 and her little son has just celebrated his second birthday so am a familiar face on the `school run`. I am also involved with the school Prayer Hour twice a term which I believe makes a difference to the day to day life of the school."

“My daughter started at Wembdon St George's School in 2014 and I’ve been really pleased with her progress, she loves her school and she is really happy. My second daughter is very much looking forward to joining her big sister. I currently live in Chilton Trinity and I have lived in this area all my life. I work at Hinkley Point B Power Station as a Safety Case Engineer and I hope to be able to use the skills and experience I have gained through industry to assist with the development of our school in my role as a Governor in particular through the Safety, Behaviour and Values committee.”
