Governors

Our Governors do a great deal of strategic work for the school and oversee its smooth running. They oversee the Organisation, Curriculum and Budget of the school whilst the day-to–day running is the responsibility of the Headteacher and Staff.
 
Our Governors are volunteers who meet regularly for both full Governing Body Meetings and for Committee Meetings where the work is shared out. They are responsible for:
‚Äč
  • Promoting high standards of education and achievement
  • Planning the school’s long-term future
  • Setting the school’s aims and values
  • Appointing senior staff including the Headteacher
  • Budgetary allocation and control
  • Deciding on the number of staff to be employed
  • Making sure that the curriculum is broad and balanced
 
They bring a range of skills, expertise, knowledge and interests to the school and are to be commended for their work.
 
Our Governing Body consists of Foundation Governors who are appointed by the Diocese of Salford, Local Authority Representatives, Staff and Parent Governors.
