The Role of the Governing Body
The governing body is responsible for the conduct of its school, and must promote high standards of educational achievement at the school. It is the school's accountable body.

How do we work?
Building and Maintenance Fund
As St Nicholas is a Voluntary Aided School it receives less financial support than schools controlled by Surrey County Council and, contrary to popular belief, the school does not receive any financial support from the church. Therefore, in essence, we are responsible for 10% of the costs of providing, extending, improving, repairing and maintaining all capital items such as the school buildings, the playgrounds and associated drainage, plant, fixtures and fittings etc.
In order to provide these very necessary costs, we ask parents to acknowledge a voluntary commitment to contribute each year to the school’s Building and Maintenance Fund. The present recommended contribution is £72 per child per year or £6 per month. Occasionally, some parents give more than this and we are grateful for their generosity. Others are not always able to pay this much and we are equally grateful for smaller contributions. The value to the school of most contributions can be increased by participation in the Gift Aid scheme that will be explained after your child is offered a place at the school.
Contributions can be sent to the school in cash or by cheque (made payable to ‘St Nicholas Building and Maintenance Fund’) or can be made using a Bank Standing Order which we prefer. Forms can be downloaded below or are available from the school office.
