Role of the Governors
The Governors act as ‘critical friends’ to the school working closely with the Headteacher and provide a strategic role in the running of the school. This includes maintaining the ethos of St Peter’s as a Catholic school under the direction of the Bishop, setting aims and objectives, adopting policies and setting targets.
This is achieved through regular meetings – the full Governing Body meets four times a year and three committees (Resources, Staffing and Curriculum, Community and Spiritual Life) which meet termly. At these meetings Governors are expected to ask relevant and challenging questions thus ensuring the school is effective and accountable.
Governors are also a visible presence in the school sitting on interview panels for senior members of staff and attending school events supporting staff and students in their achievements and successes.
If you wish to contact either of the Co-Chairs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or send a letter marked for their attention to the school.
