Our Governing Body

The School's Governing Body help and support the Headteacher run the school for the benefit of all the children. They are responsible for monitoring expenditure, ensuring polices and procedures are in line with regulations, personnel issues and other important aspects of school life. They bring with them experience of the wider community from all walks of life. The Governors also support the school's social and fund-raising activities.


They meet as a Full Governing Body each term or more frequently if the need arises.


They also meet at Committee Meetings and report back to the Full Governing Body on issues such as curriculum, finance and pupils and personnel. Governors usually serve a four year term in office with the exception of the headteacher and the parish priest who are Governors at the school whilst they are in post.


The Governing Body was reconstituted in 2015 and now consists of:
