Our Lady of Good Help Governors

What is the role of the Governors?

The Governors work together with the Headteacher and staff to:-

  • ensure the Catholic ethos of the school;
  • determine the aims and policies of the school;
  • allocate and manage the school’s budget;
  • meet the National and LA requirements;
  • deal with matters relating to staffing;
  • see to the upkeep of the School’s buildings;
  • meet the needs of each pupil as far as is possible.

The full Governing Body meets at least twice a term, or more frequently should the occasion demand. Some committee meetings are held regularly to deal with matters such as staffing, buildings, curriculum and finance. All Governors serve the school on a voluntary basis.
