"WITH JESUS WE LOVE LEARN AND GROW"

Governors

Our Governing body is made up of of representatives from our parish and school community, as well as staff and parents. They offer support and challenge to the school to ensure we fulfil our aims and mission whilst striving to provide the best education possible for our children.

Minutes of meetings are made available retrospectively and once they have been approved at the following meeting (ie Spring minutes are approved at the Summer meeting).

The full governing body (FGB) meets termly, with committees that report to the FGB meeting termly or more frequently if required. .

Our Governors strive to get to know our staff and children whilst continuing in their own jobs and community roles and many try to visit their adopted classes termly if they can.

The documents attached to this page outline who our Governors are and the roles they have.

The Governing Body should be made up of twelve Governors, seven of whom are appointed by the Archdiocese of Liverpool (known as Foundation Governors), one who is appointed by the Local Authority and two representatives each from the parental body and staff.

Below is the statutory information required to be published about our Governing Body.
