Governors in our school
Governors are people who wish to make a positive contribution to the school and the education of its children. They will contribute to the effective day-to-day running of the school and have an effective input toward the educational achievements of its pupils. They contribute their own free time to assist with leadership and management of the school, and we are extremely grateful to all of our governors.
In a Catholic school, the governors have extra responsibilities. For example, they are the employer of the staff; and are responsible for pupil admissions. The Local Authority manages the Admissions Process on behalf of the governors.
A majority of our governors are called Foundation Governors; they are appointed by our Bishop, Mark Davies, to uphold the Catholic ethos of the school. Parent Governors are nominated and elected by parents. More information for prospective parent governors can be found in the attachments below.
The school building itself is owned by the Diocese of Shrewsbury and managed by the governing body. Catholic schools' governors have to find an extra 10% of all building costs. So we ask for a voluntary parental contribution to the School Building Fund every year.
The headteacher in a Catholic school is employed by the governing body to ensure the smooth day to day management and running of the school. We all work in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Local Authority, to ensure high standards, a sound Catholic education and most of all a safe environment for learning.
Local Authority Governors are appointed by Cheshire West and Chester Council.
