Governors

The School Governors play a strategic role in making decisions and taking action to improve the standards of teaching and learning for all pupils at the school in a safe and stimulating environment.

Who are School Governors?

The governors are made up of twelve people and are drawn from different parts of the school community, Catholic Foundation Governors and Local Authority which ensures that a sufficient diversity of views and experience is represented:

  • Parent governors are selected by election and are drawn from parents and carers of pupils at the school.
  • Staff governors – selected by election from teaching and support staff paid to work at the school.
  • Catholic Foundation Governors – appointed by the Birmingham Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham.
  • Local Authority governors – appointed by the Local Authority.

What do the School Governors do?

Governors have a range of duties and powers and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. This includes setting targets for pupil achievement, managing the school’s finances, making sure the curriculum is balanced and broadly based, the learning environment is safe, appointing staff and reviewing staff performance and pay and many more.

The Full Governing Body meets once per term in which all members meet together, each committee is reviewed and shared amongst Governors so that they are fully aware of the progress made by all committees.
