Governors of St Joseph's

There are twelve Governors of the School, seven Foundation Governors and five Representative Governors. They work continually to ensure that the school maintains its very high standards. Named Governors take a lead on monitoring progress in all areas of school, rigorously verifying that our children receive a first class education. 

The Full Governing Body meets routinely five times a year. There is a formal agenda set in advance and a wide range of issues concerning the school are discussed.  At each meeting, the Full Governing Body will hear reports from Lead Governors for Finance, for Health and Safety and for Human Resources and Wellbeing. Minutes of the Full Governing Body Meeting are available. 

As most areas of school work are brought to the attention of the Full Governing Body, sub committees were disbanded in early 2020. The new way of working is proving most effective. Some sub committees, such as Admissions meet when work requires.

In common with Governors elsewhere, our Governors are volunteers and their work is unpaid.  The Chair of Governors is Ray Henry and the Vice Chair is Mo Johnson.  Our Safeguarding Governor is Ray Henry.

The Governors at our school work as a dedicated team and have a very specific role to play in ensuring that standards are raised and that our children are happy and confident learners.  To do this, they work closely with the Headteacher and other staff, as well as the Parish, the local authority and parents.  

Governing bodies are required to publish any pecuniary interests on the school website. Currently, none of the governors have interests (business, financial or governance of other schools) to declare.

All Governors serve for a term of four years.
