St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School & Nursery has a very committed and hard working governing body, who are very involved in school life, spending at least half a day a term in school visiting classes and observing lessons. Governors also meet with staff and pupils to discuss learning. This is in addition to termly committee and full governor body meetings. Parents are also provided with an opportunity to meet with governors at our parent governor mornings.
In March 2016 the Governors were awarded the National Governor Mark, which is a quality standard for School Governing Bodies in England. Governor Mark is a national award and quality mark which provides an external evaluation of the quality of governance in St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School & Nursery.
Governor Mark recognises the difference governing boards make to school and academy leadership and management. It is a mechanism to achieve accreditation against an agreed quality standard and clearly identifies the IMPACT of the governing board ON SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT AND OUTCOMES for children and young people.
