Governors

The main concern of every Governor is to ensure that all the children attending the school are offered every opportunity to receive an education of the highest possible standard in accordance with the School Mission Statement. The day to day management of a school is the responsibility of the Head Teacher but a successful school depends on an effective working partnership between governors, staff, parents and all engaged at the school.

 

There are various categories of Governors – Staff, Parents, Local Authority and Foundation. All are elected or appointed by different groups of people. As a Catholic school, the Foundation Governors are appointed by the Diocese. Their main responsibilities are finance, premises, curriculum, personnel, and as a Voluntary Aided Catholic School, admissions. In line with the teachers and support staff, they attend training courses organised by the Local Authority and Brentwood Religious Education Service. There is a statutory requirement for governors to meet at least once each school term. The Governing Body is divided into committees covering curriculum subjects and all aspects of school welfare and safety. These committees report to the full Governing Body at its termly meetings. The election of the Chair and Vice Chair takes places at the autumn term meeting. The tenure of governors is four years but they can be re-appointed or re-elected for further terms.
