Governing Body

 

School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools and their overall role is a strategic one. The key functions of the governing body are to:

  • preserve and develop the Catholic ethos of the school
  • ensure the Catholic ethos is upheld
  • hold the Headteacher to account
  • oversee the finacial performance of the school and set the budget
  • manage the school's admissions arrangements
  • recruit senior leadership positions 

The Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the governing body.
