There are four main types of Governor at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School: Foundation, Parent, Staff and Local Authority.
Becoming a Foundation Governor
The majority of governors in St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School are Foundation Governors, appointed by Fr Pat Fitzgerald CP, as a trustee of the Passionist Religious Order. Foundation Governors have a legal duty to preserve and develop the Catholic character of the school and to ensure that the school is conducted in accordance with its Trust Deed.
More information can be found by contacting Fr Pat Fitzgerald via email.
When vacancies arise, parents of pupils attending the school may elect one or more of their number to serve as a school governor. Elected parent governors, like elected staff governors, are full members of the governing body.
