About Us

Governance

What the Governing Body does:

The three core functions for governance in all academies are:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

  • Holding the Executive Leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and

  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

At St. Mary’s Junior school, everything we do as a governor body is held together under the vision statement.

‘Raising aspirations and a love of learning through courage, resilience, positive relationships and God’s love.

 

Our Governing Body currently consists of 2 foundation governors, 2 community governors, 2 parent governors, 2 staff governors and the Principal
