The main role of the governing body is to operate at a strategic level, leaving the head teacher and senior school leaders responsible and accountable to the governing body for the operational day-to-day running of the school. As such, the three core functions of the governing body are:

icon 1

Ensuring clarity of the Catholic vision, ethos and strategic direction

icon 2

Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance and Catholic character of the school and its pupils

icon 3

Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
