Our Governors

The Role of our Governing Board:

The Governing Board is a team of parishioners, parents, staff and members of the community who work together to support and challenge the head teacher in the governance and strategic leadership of the school.They are volunteers who ensure the school successfully meets the needs of all its pupils and achieves high standards.The governors have a responsibility to ensure the school serves as a witness to Christ and his Gospel in all that it does and in all aspects of school life. The work of the governors therefore is rooted in the school Mission statement:

 “A Christ centred family, illuminated by the light of faith, inspired to achieve.”


In addition, the governors have responsibility for:

  • admission of pupils
  • appointment of staff
  • oversight of the curriculum
  • oversight of finance
  • oversight of teaching of RE and collective worship.
