Sacred Heart Governors

 

Introduction

The Governors at Sacred Heart, all volunteers, are responsible for overseeing the smooth and effective running of the school.  The needs of the children are always a priority in decision-making. Governors appoint staff and decide how best to use the school budget and administer the School Building Fund. They all receive on-going training which helps them to make informed decisions.

 

There are half-termly full Governing Body meetings, and regular committee meetings.  Parents are welcome to raise issues for consideration at these meetings.

 

At Sacred Heart, the Governing Body consists of twelve Governors of which there are:

  • Foundation Governors
  • Parent Governors
  • One Local Authority Governor
  • One Staff Governor
  • Headteacher

Additionally, the Governing Board can invite Associate Members to join the board to support with governance at committee level. For more information, please see The Instrument of Governance below.

 

Governors are appointed for a term of four years.  Parent Governors are elected by parents with children at the school while Foundation Governors are Catholic governors appointed by the Diocese. The LA Governor is a volunteer from the local community appointed by the Local Authority.

 

Each Governor is a member of at least two committees, which are:

  • Admissions (A)
  • Finance, Premises and Personnel (FPP)
  • Quality of Education (QoE)
  • Behaviour and Attitudes, Personal Development (BAPD)

Meeting dates can also be found on the Calendar
