About Us

Governing body

Governing bodies are responsible for the strategic management of a school and will make decisions about a wide range of issues.

The core responsibilities involved are:

  • Ensuring accountability
  • Acting as a ‘critical friend’ to the Head Teacher
  • Monitoring and evaluating the school’s progress
  • Budgetary allocation and control
  • Planning for the long-term future of the school
  • Setting the school’s aims and values
  • Appointing senior members of staff including the Head Teacher
  • Ensure the Christian ethos of the school is maintained and developed.
  • Ensure there is daily Collective Worship and weekly teaching of Religious Education.

The role of the Governors is to ensure that all the statutory duties of governance in the school are carried out.

We follow a committee model of governance, with governors also allocated to monitor specific key responsibility areas within the school, as identified on the School Improvement Plan. We have 3 full governing body meetings each year as well as 3 committee meetings each for committees.

The Chair of the Governors, Fr Robin, is more than happy to answer any questions on governance and can be contacted through the school.
