Governors

Governing Body 

Every school has a Governing Body made up of a group of volunteers.

Key roles of Governors:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • To ensure accountability for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and ensure value for money.
  • To support, challenge and undertake the role of ‘critical friend’.

 

Governors also carry out a number of other important duties: 

  • Determining how the school’s budget is spent.
  • Forming policy on the school’s curriculum and other activities.
  • Setting standards for pupils’ behaviour and discipline.
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe.
  • Setting and monitoring the school’s aims and policies.
  • Hearing appeals and grievances.

All schools have an individual Instrument of Government, which is a legal document setting out how many governors there are: who appoints, elects and co-opts them; who is eligible to be a governor and how long they serve.

 

Foundation governors are appointed by the Bishop of Shrewsbury to represent the interests of the Catholic Church that provides the school.  

 

The local authority of Halton helps maintain the school, and also appoints a Governor. The parents of registered pupils at the school elect two individual parents to be Parent Governors. Staff at the school also elect a 'staff Governor' and the Headteacher is a Governor. 

 

A Governor’s term of office runs for 4 years, after which they may be re-appointed.

We currently have three vacancies for Foundation Governors.

St Edward's Governors attend meetings of the Full Governing Body and Sub-Committees each term. At the moment they are 'virtual' meetings held online. Last year meetings after March were virtual and some of us had 'technical' issues whilst getting used to the new way of communicating with each other.

 

This is Governor attendance for 2019  / 2020.
