Our Governing Body

The governing body is responsible for our school. The main governing body meets once per term. There are groups within the governing body that are called sub committees who also meet each term; these committees are responsible for staffing, finance, pupils, curriculum and building matters. The Governing body is made up of foundation governors (appointed by the Bishop, usually parish members elected to represent the diocese), parent governors, staff governors and a local council representative.


Role of a Governing Body

The governors are responsible for:

• The general running of the school.
• Policy development.
• Planning the school budget.
• Selecting and appointing staff.
• Supporting school discipline.
• Producing an annual report for parents.
• Maintaining the Catholicity of the school.
• School Development Planning.

The Governors meet at least once a term and also attend other committee meetings.
