Our Governors

Under English law, governing bodies of Catholic schools have a corporate responsibility to ensure that their schools are managed in accordance with the Diocesan Trust Deed or the Trust Deed of the relevant religious institution, and the school’s Instrument of Government or Memorandum of Understanding, Articles of Association and Supplemental Agreements for academies, as well as complying with all other legal requirements.

The members of the governing body care very much for the well-being of the school and its pupils. The governing body has a general responsibility to ensure that the school is run effectively and provides the best education for its pupils. To carry out its duties effectively, the governing body works closely with the headteacher and senior staff. The governing body's main duties are to advise and challenge the headteacher in implementing school policies, surveying parents' views, setting budgets, responding to inspection, recruitment, staff discipline and appeals. The governing body monitors all of the above, along with the standards of education and achievement, in order to hold the school to account.

The governing body is made up of the following members :-

9 Foundation Governors appointed by the Archdiocese of Southwark

1 LA Governor

2 Parent Governors

1 Staff Governor

1 Head Teacher

Since the 1st September 2015, governing bodies have been under a duty to publish their register of interests on their website. This sets out the relevant business interests of governors, details of any other education establishments they govern, and any relationships between governors and members of school staff including spouses, partners and relatives.
