The Governing Body

 

The Governing Body, which was reconstituted on 26 February 2015, is made up of 12 members, the majority of whom are foundation governors, appointed by the Archbishop of Westminster.  In addition to 7 foundation governors, there are 2 parent governors, elected by the parent body, a staff governor elected by the staff at the school, a governor appointed by the local authority and Mrs Minihan, Headteacher ex officio.  Foundation governors have a specific duty to preserve and develop the Catholic character of the school and ensure the school is conducted as a Catholic School in accordance with Canon Law, the teachings of the Catholic Church and the Trust Deed of The Diocese of Westminster.  All governors have voting rights.

 

The Governing Body is a corporate body, made up of volunteers who serve for a period of 4 years.  To enable governors to fulfil their responsibilities, they receive regular training relating to the various aspects of their work.  In addition to safeguarding the Catholic ethos and promoting British values, the role of the Governing Body is to:

  • Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school, its pupils and the performance management of staff.
  • Oversee the financial performance of the school and ensure its money is well spent.

 

Therefore, the role of the Governing Body is strategic rather than operational.  It is the Headteacher who has responsibility for the day to day organisation and management of the school.

 

All governors are members of at least one committee:

  • Teaching and Learning
  • Resources
  • Children , Families and the Community
  • Staffing
  • Admissions

 

The Headteacher attends all committee meetings.  Each term after the committee meetings have taken place, all governors attend the Full Governing Body meeting.  Mr. Stephen Frayne is Clerk to the Governing Body and can be contacted via the school address.
