Governors work in partnership with the headteacher and other senior leaders to provide strategic leadership and promote and support the success of the school and to secure the best possible education for every child in the school.
The Governors are responsible for ensuring that the school has a broad and balanced curriculum, that it is safe and secure and that the ethos and environment helps children to learn and thrive. They are also responsible for monitoring the school's finances and work with the headteacher to make the tough decisions about balancing resources. As a Catholic school, Foundation Governors also ensure that the school continues to promote the mission of the Catholic church through the policies and practices.
The Governing Board is made up of:
7 Foundation Governors appointed by the Bishop
1 Local Authority Governor
2 Parent Governors elected by the Parent Community
1 Staff Governor
and the Head teacher Governor
Individual Governors do not act independently; decisions are the joint responsibility of the governing body as they act as a corporate body.
Their key function is:
The Governing Body meets once per half term. In addition, each Governor sits on one or more committee and is responsible for an aspect of the work of the Governing body.
