The Governing Body

The local governing body is made up of a group of appointed volunteers drawn from the surrounding villages and communities. We have a variety of different backgrounds and skill sets and our aim is to work in partnership with the headteacher and staff, to enable the best possible education and opportunities for all the children in our care.

We meet once a month and are involved in making important decisions which affect the strategic direction of The Federation. This can involve discussion on school budgets, staffing and recruitment, safeguarding, health and safety, resourcing and of course school improvement and development.

Governor List Sept 21

Terry Gibson

Chair of Governors

“We moved to Seavington St Michael in 2015 when my husband retired, in order to be nearer to our family. We love living in this area and have become fully involved with village life.
As a lifelong teacher, my vocation has always rested in education. Having previously been Chair of Governors at a primary school in Sussex it was an honour to be asked to be the Foundation Governor for The Three Saints Federation. This involves securing strong links between the schools, the churches and the diocese of Bath and Wells. Joining the Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust in April 2020 has widened the network of opportunities for all of us, as a governing body, to improve our skills and knowledge in order to help to secure school improvement and I welcome this development.
