St. John’s Governors

GOVERNORS’ PRAYER

God our Father,

We seek your blessing and support in all the responsibilities we bear as Governors of this school.

May we reach our decisions prompted by a desire to serve.

May your Spirit grant us wisdom and understanding.

Keep the pupils and staff and all associated with our School under your watchful eye, so that the purpose of our school may flourish for the good of all at all times.

St John the Evangelist – Pray for us

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen

Please see below for information about what our governing body do and how they ensure that we are providing your children with the quality of education they deserve. You can get in touch with Governors via the school office but should contact the Headteacher or class teacher in the first instance regarding operational matters.

School Governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. They have a responsibility for the aims and objectives of the school and for the supporting policies, plans  and procedures within which the school operates. At St John’s, this includes the promotion and maintenance of the school’s Catholic character and mission.

Governors determine and keep these under review and evaluate the progress the school is making. They are responsible for the management of the school budget, premises and admissions. Governors appoint and work closely with the Headteacher providing challenge and support- they are the Headteacher’s “critical friend”.

The Headteacher manages these Governors responsibilities and is responsible for the internal organisation and day to day management and control of the school, for the delivery of the curriculum and for the implementation of policy and strategic framework established by the Governing Body.

The majority of our Governors are Foundation Governors who are appointed by the Bishop with responsibilities to ensure the religious character of the school and that it is run in accordance with his policies on education in his Diocese.
