There are 14 members on the Board of Governors.
The constitution is as follows:
- 9 Foundation – appointed by Salford Diocese
- 1 LEA – appointed by Lancashire Education Authority
- 2 Parents – elected by parents and guardians of children on roll at the school at the time of the election
- 2 Staff – 1 elected by staff and the Headteacher
Full Governing Body meetings are held at least four times each year, twice during the Autumn term and once during the Spring and Summer terms. There are sub-committees some of which have to exist by law and are known as statutory committees. These are committees which deal with both pupil and staff discipline and official complaints and any appeals which may arise from these matters. The non-statutory committees are:
- Standards and Achievements
- Pupi Welfare and Discipline
These committees meet at least once each term in a pre-arranged cycle prior to a full Governing Body meeting but might also meet as the need arises. Reports from each committee are passed to all Governors at their termly meeting for information or ratification.
By law some decisions can only be made by all the Governors and cannot be delegated to a committee. An example of this is the determining of the Admissions Policy in the school.
A Governor represents everyone in the school, not just the body which elected them; a parent Governor brings the views and expertise of being a parent and is not a representative of parents as a whole. Any Governor can be approached if a person has a matter of concern or requires information.
As required by law, the Governing Body has a publication scheme available under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. The aim of the school is to enable every child to fulfil their learning potential with education that meets the needs of each child and also to help every child develop the skills, knowledge and personal qualities needed for life and work. The publication scheme is a means of showing how this school is pursuing these aims. A full list of documents available for public access can be found elsewhere on this website.
The school contact about any documents contained within the publication scheme is Mr Halshaw who is the Clerk to the Governing Body. He can be contacted during school hours for information about this or about any matters pertaining to the Governors.
