St Joseph's Catholic

Primary School

Following in the footsteps of Jesus, together we love live and learn.

The Governing Body


The principal role of the Governing Body is to uphold the Catholic ethos and determine the overall strategic direction of the school.  Governors regularly monitor and evaluate the performance of the school through meetings and visits.  Governors appoint professional staff to fulfill the educational responsibilities of the school.  Governors are not involved in the day to day running of the school.

The majority of the governors are Foundation Governors who are appointed by the Archbishop.  They are practising Catholics and very often parents or former parents of children in the school.  Other governors are elected to their role by groups within the school’s community.  The Governors act collectively as a body and no governor acts as an individual without prior approval by the full governing body.
