The Governing Body

Welcome to our Governors’ section.


Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

 

Our Governing Body


Our Governing Body provide support to the school leadership team of the school. 

They meet on at least 16 occasions over the year with at least one meeting each term for the whole Governing Body and half termly meetings for the various committees (Teaching, Learning & Curriculum; Assessment & Progress; Resources; RE & Ethos).

The Resources Committee (HR, Finance and Premises) plans the schools expenditure against the budget allocated through West Sussex Local Authority.  They are responsible for all staff recruitment, employment and HR management.  They provide statutory oversight of Health and Safety and develop a buildings plan to ensure that our children have a wonderful learning environment.

The Teaching and Learning Committee support the leadership team in ensuring that we have good to outstanding standards in teaching and learning and that our curriculum is appropriate for learning today.

There are different categories of Governor:

 

  • Foundation - appointed by the Bishop, to preserve and uphold the Catholic identity of the school.  Foundation Governors always have a majority.
  • Parent - elected by other parents
  • Staff - elected by staff, full and part time.
  • Local Authority - a representative from the local area, often a political appointee.
  • Head Teacher - the Head Teacher is a member of the Governing Body.

 

Since September 2015, the Governors have also had the power to co-opt additional members, with particular skills.  For example, Father Louis Ezeilo, who is a member of the Parish Team, attends all REDC Meetings.  The Governors are supported by a clerk, Mrs Mary Lamplough.
