St Joseph's Catholic Primary School

'Love Jesus, Love Ourselves, Love Each Other, Love Learning, Love Life'

Welcome from the Governors

Dear Parents and Carers

My name is Alison Raines and I am delighted to be Chair of St Joseph’s Governing Body. I follow a long line of experienced and caring people who have held this role and it is a hard act to follow. I will always strive to do my best for the children and staff of our wonderful school.

St Joseph's Governors are all volunteers but are extremely committed, very involved in school life and passionate about supporting Miss Daley and Staff in providing a safe, secure and happy school for your children.

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 is money is well spent.

If you need any information about governance then please get in touch with me through the school office.
