What we do

Governors work as a team, in the best interests of the children and the school, to raise educational

standards and ensure everyone within the school community is safe. The Headteacher is part of the team. Governors: 

  • are accountable for the performance of the school to parents and the wider community
  • plan the school’s future direction
  • sustain and develop the Catholic ethos and distinctive Catholic nature of the school
  •  appoint the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher 
  • make decisions on the school’s budget and staffing structures 
  • make sure the national curriculum is taught and set the Statutory Attainment Target 
  • agree policies about the way the governing body and the school work
  • decide how the school can encourage pupil’s spiritual, moral and social development
  • make sure the school provides for all its pupils, whatever their abilities and needs
  •  support and challenge the Headteacher by gathering views, asking questions and deciding what’s best for the school.

 

How we work

The Governing Body meets twice a term. We have an Audit Committee who meet once a term

Full Governing Body – who consider the school’s strategic development. 

Governors perform their role by:

  • Attending meetings, including participating in at least one committee
  • Receiving written briefings, reports and presentations from the Headteacher and other staff  Discussing and debating key issues and data
  • Visiting the school, including undertaking a specific role as a link governor  Meeting with parents and staff – both informally and formally
  • Undertaking regular training

 

Feedback from/to Parents and Pupils

We carry out an annual survey of parents and discuss the results. We provide feedback and updates to parents on the survey and other activities via the website and ‘Red Hearts’ newsletter. Governors also attend School Council meetings and discuss the results of pupil surveys and feedback from class teachers.

We are always keen to hear the view of parents – please feel able to tell us what you think at any time.

 

You can contact us by:

  • Leaving a note/comment addressed to the Governors in the office post box
  • Emailing or phoning the school office (details above)

There are many people involved in ensuring that our school community continues to thrive.

 

The Governors would like to express their thanks to:

  • our pupils for all their hard work
  • our staff for their continued commitment to the school  our parents and carers for their support and feedback and
  • our volunteers for all the time they freely give that makes a huge difference.
