​The Governing Body

As Governors of the Three Saints Federation, governing both St Marys and St Peter's Primary School and Shepton Beauchamp Primary School, we would like to introduce ourselves and tell you a little about what we do. 

We are a voluntary group of adults from very differing backgrounds.  We each bring different skills, experiences and knowledge to the Governing Body, and each have a vested interest in our community schools and our children's education.

We meet twice a term with meetings held alternately at Shepton and Ilton.  We oversee various parts of the school's running in a strategic way which can involve meetings discussing school budgets, staffing and recruitment, health and safety, resourcing and how the school can continue to make improvements and develop.

Yours sincerely

Three Saints Federation Governing Body

My husband is a priest and we moved to Seavington on retirement to be nearer to our family. I enjoy singing and walking and I'm involved with the book keeping at our local community shop and café'.
