St Dunstan's is a Voluntary Aided Church of England school, and our Governing Body is made up from a mixture of appointed and elected governors.
Foundation governors are always in the majority and are appointed by the Cheam Parochial Church Council (PCC) and the Diocese of Southwark; parent governors are elected by the parent body; the staff governor is elected by the staff. In addition, the London Borough of Sutton appoint a governor and the Headteacher and Rector are ex-officio members.
The role of the governing body is strategic, not operational, with 3 key aims:
Ensuring the clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the school;
Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
Overseeing the financial performance of the school and ensuring money is well-spent.
Chair of Governors: Mr Martin Swain
Vice Chair: Mrs Naomi Carne
