The governing body is similar to a Board of Directors. It makes decisions on how the school is run and has a
general responsibility for managing the school effectively. The Governing Body’s  most important function is to maintain the Catholic nature
of the school.

Governors meet as a body at least once a term and in committees on many occasions during the school year. They are responsible for determining
the admissions policy, helping to decide on the school’s curriculum, employing staff, setting standards of behaviour, overseeing the spending
of the school budget, maintaining and improving the school building and grounds, and supporting the headteacher and staff.

The Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities and report to the parents. Each governor takes a particular interest in some aspect
of school life.
