A successful school is one where teachers, Governors and parents work together in partnership for the benefit of all the pupils. The Governing Board must include two parents nominated by the parents and elected by them to the Governing Board. It must also include one Staff Governor elected by the teaching and non-teaching staff at the school.
There are also Foundation Governors appointed for a four year period by the Diocese of Clifton, as well as a Governor appointed by Gloucestershire Local Authority.
The full Governing Board meets six times a year to deal with specific areas such as finance, premises, curriculum, staffing, admissions and appeals. Minutes of meetings are available for review in school. Governors are involved in producing the School Development Plan and the school budget, interviewing and appointing staff, Health & Safety, monitoring the general running of the school, supporting school discipline and good behaviour and maintaining the Catholic ethos of the school.
