Our School Governors

As a Voluntary Aided School with a delegated budget, the Governing Body at All Saints has a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational attainment within a caring catholic environment, whilst ensuring the safety and well-being of all its pupils.

The Governing Body and Head Teacher act in partnership in leading the school forward undertaking key roles as follows:

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE GOVERNING BODY: 

  • Setting the school’s values, vision and strategic aims, agreeing aims and
    objectives and setting school policies.

  • Monitoring and evaluating performance, acting as a critical friend to the Head
    Teacher and Senior Leadership Team to support and challenge them in
    managing the school.

  • Ensuring that the school is accountable to all those it seeks to serve – pupils and
    parents, staff it employs, Diocese and Parishes and those who fund and maintain
    it.
