Our Multi Academy Company
St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School is part of the St Catherine of Siena Multi Academy Company (MAC.) The MAC consists of four primary Catholic Sandwell schools and is a registered company: Company no: 09497062 (registered in England and Wales.) Our schools are:
St Francis Xavier Catholic Primary School
St Gregory's Catholic Primary School
Our Lady and St Hubert's Catholic Primary School
St Philip's Catholic Primary School
The aim of the Academy Committee 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 committee 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.
