Dear Parents/Carers

My name is Angela Blenkinship and in September 2015 I was elected Chair of Governors, here at St Joseph’s, in place of Stephen Aspden.

Stephen has been a committed, passionate and extremely hard working Chair and we were all saddened when he took the decision to step down after many years of loyal service to our school.  He remains a Foundation Governor however and we are pleased to have his continuing expertise.

Whilst the day to day management of the school is the responsibility of the Head teacher, as Governors, we are responsible for:-

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and it’s pupils
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure it’s money is well spent.
