The governing body of St. Joseph’s RC Primary School is made up of parents, members of the local community known as Foundation Governors and Parent Foundation Governors, teaching and non-teaching staff and a representative of the Local Authority. The full governing body meets at least once per term although all governors are members of at least one committee of the governing body which meet more regularly.
The Governing Body are responsible for many areas of school life including policy development, the curriculum, financial management, recruitment, premises management and the production of the school’s annual School Improvement Plan.
