School Improvement Board

School Improvement Board


The School Improvement Board (SIB) of St. Peter's actively runs the school with the Headteacher and the staff. Together, they determine the strategic direction, policies and practice of the school and monitor standards and achievement.


They meet five times a year as a full board and receive a report from the Headteacher.  They ask questions, debate issues and make decisions.  They act as a critical friend to the school.  In between the full SIB meetings the Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Development (SMSCD) Committee and working parties set up to focus on key areas meet.  This is a large first school and there is always a lot of business to deal with.


For full details on the remit of the School Improvement Board, please see the Scheme of Delegation and the Terms of Reference which are published on the Rivers Multi Academy Trust site here.


Please contact Gail Hodnett, Clerk to the School Improvement Board to view minutes for governance meetings.  Please note, items marked confidential are not for public view.

Annual Questionnaire


Each year, the School Improvement Board send out a questionnaire to all parents/carers based on the Ofsted Parent View survey. There are some additional questions relating specifically to St Peter's and an opportunity for additional comments to be added.  A record of responses have been collated since 2010, however no data was recorded for 2014 as the questionnaire was released on Survey Monkey and the response rate was so low the data was not comparable. Below are responses from SIB members to feedback from the 2017/2018 questionnaire and also a graph record of responses since 2010. 

We care. We share. We tell the truth.
