Types of Governor

Foundation Governor – Representatives of the Church, appointed by the Bishop of Salford.

Staff Governor – Representative of the Staff, elected by all Staff.

Parent Governor – Elected by the parents of the School.

Each Governor has responsibility for a particular priority within the School Improvement plan as well as core areas of school life e.g. Safeguarding. Meetings are arranged for members of staff to meet with their ‘link Governor’ at least once a year. Subject leaders are asked to write an annual report containing updates in their subject for the ‘link Governor’. Subject leaders are invited to attend a meeting to present developments relevant to their area of curriculum responsibility once per year.
