Welcome to our Governors’ section
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories and responsibilities for each Governor.
All schools in England have a Governing Body which is responsible for overseeing many of the strategic decisions of the school. A key role is to act as a ‘critical friend’: to support, to challenge, to ask questions, ultimately to represent the school community.
The Governing Body works in close partnership with the Headteacher, staff and the local authority. Whilst the Headteacher is, of course, responsible for the day to day running of the school, the governors are involved with such things as staffing, curriculum, school buildings and finance. It ensures the school functions well and maintains the proper range of academic and social objectives.
Who are we?
The Governing Body now consists of:
- Pat Jones - Foundation Governor/Acting Co-Chair
- Christine Maymon - Foundation Governor/Acting Co-Chair
- Lynn Elder - Ex Officio
- Leah Deighan - Staff Governor
- Fr Kevin Murphy - Ex Officio
- Mary Garvey - Foundation Governor
- Ifeoma Ogbologu - Foundation Governor
- Dean Maryam - Parent Governor
- Himo Sonny-Joe - Parent Governor
The standard term of office for a governor is four years. The chair and vice-chair are elected annually at the first meeting of the academic year.
The Co-Chairs of governors are Ms Pat Jones Mrs Christine Maymon, who can be contacted via the school office or directly via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
