Governance - The Local Governing Body
The aim of the Local Governing Body at our school is to work with the staff in helping the children achieve their full potential in a happy, caring environment.
We do this in four main ways:
1. Monitoring the performance and progress of our children.
2. Working with the staff to help them teach and care for our children.
3. Deciding on how the resources of the school are best used.
4. Planning ahead so that the performance of our children and our school continues to improve.
To deliver this effectively the governing body members are representative of the key groups involved in our school - the parents, the staff, the church community. All of these people have the best interests of the school at heart and give a great deal of time in support of St Francis Xavier School.
We meet together as an Academy Committee at least once every term as do our 'Provisions' and 'Outcomes' committees. In addition we each have a specialist area that we take particular interest in (eg. Safeguarding, English, Special Educational Needs).
We are always keen to hear your views and I hope that we can work together to ensure that St Francis Xavier continues to be the outstanding school that it is today.
