Our Governors

The Governing Body of St. Patrick’s Primary School is made up of ordinary people who volunteer because they have an interest in education and a commitment to ensuring that the children who are pupils of the school achieve to the best of their ability.

 

We work in partnership with the Head Teacher and her staff to raise standards of achievement for all pupils of the school, set budgets and oversee the curriculum.  We do this by fostering positive relationships based on communication, understanding and support.

 

We work hard to maintain the catholic ethos of the school and to make the school mission statement an integral part of our work.

 

Our Governing Body is made up of the Head Teacher who is automatically appointed, Foundation Governors, who are appointed by the diocese, Parent Governors who have a child or children in the school and are elected by other parents, staff governors who work in the school, Local authority governors who are appointed by the local authority and associate governors who are appointed by the governing body but do not have a vote.

 

We are all enthusiastic and passionate about the work we do as we continue to strengthen our membership.
