ST MARY’S GOVERNING BODY  

 

In accordance with the Government’s requirement for all governing bodies, the 3 core strategic functions of St Mary’s RC Primary School Governing Body are: 

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos, values and strategic direction; 
  • Holding the Head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; 
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.   Governance Structure and Meetings 

    The Governing Body of St Mary’s RC Primary School Primary School was re-constituted again in 2017-18 year. 

    We are now made up of: 

    1 Staff Governor 

    Headteacher Governor 

    2 Elected Parent Governors 

    1 Local Authority Governor 

    7 Foundation governors

    Each governor has a specific role within the work of the school. The Governing Body works as a team and acts with integrity, objectivity and honesty, in the best interests of the children in our school.  The Headteacher and the Senior Leadership Team run the school on a day to day basis, but the governors provide support, assistance and challenge, acting as a “critical friend” to ensure that the school continues to maintain and improve high standards in everything it does

    As a Catholic school, the governors have an overriding responsibility to remain focused on the mission of the school to provide the best possible Catholic education for every pupil.

     MEETINGS 

    The Full Governing Body meets three times in the year.  We reviewed and revised our committee structure in 2017/18 to move further in line with the core functions.  We now have two committees 

  • Finance, Resources and Staffing 
  • Standards, Effectiveness and Curriculum which meet at least termly, sometimes more often if required.  We have used these meetings to monitor progress of targets in the school improvement plan and challenge and hold senior leaders to account on all aspects of the work of the school. 

Chair: Mr J McMahon

Vice Chair: Mrs M Misell
