Governors

 

Welcome to the Governors’ section of St. Peter’s Catholic Primary school website.  School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools as well having responsibility to appoint the Head Teacher and Deputy Head Teacher. The Governing Body has three core responsibilities which are to:

 

  • ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction

  • hold the Head Teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff

  • oversee the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent

     

    In addition to this, the Governing Body also plays a significant role in helping to develop and maintain the Catholic character of our school. 

    Our Governing Body, which is made up of 6 Foundation Governors (appointed by the Bishop), the Head Teacher, a Staff Governor, 2 Parent Governors and a Local Authority Governor and meets every month to help the school fulfil its Mission. Governors do this by getting to know the school, reviewing policies, regulating admissions, planning building work and reading reports and undertaking monitoring visits to ensure that the school is meeting the needs of all children.Governors can be contacted via the school office.
