Governors play an important part in maintaining the school and are made up of people from the school and the wider community. .
The different categories of governors on our governing body are:
Parent Governors who have been appointed as they have a child in school at the time of their election;
Staff Governors who are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues;
Foundation Governors are appointed on to the governing body by Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education;
Local Authority Governors who are nominated by the local authortiy and appointed by the governing body;
The Headteacher is also a member of the governing body by right of the position they hold in the school;
Co-opted governors are members who have been appointed by the present governing body and may have previously held a different position.
Each member is elected onto a committee:
- Curriculum & Standards
- Standards and Effectiveness
All committees meet each term (three times per year) to ensure the smooth running of the school and a full Governors meeting is also held each term.
All Governors are encouraged to take an active role within school and each class has their own Governor. Governors also work with subject co-ordinators to assist with curriculum development.
