St. Chad's Catholic Primary School, Catholic Lane, Sedgley, Dudley

St Chad's Governing Body

Welcome to the Governing Body area of the website where we will post information about the membership and work of the Governing Body.

Governors play a very important role in the life of the school and we would like to explain who we are and what we do.

So who are we?

We are a group made up of governors of parents, staff and practising Catholics. This means that we bring together a very wide range of views and experience from both within and beyond the school.

Governors don’t need any formal qualifications, expertise or previous experience, just some time to offer and an interest in helping to ensure that every student gets the most out of their time at our school.

We work as a team and although we each belong to a particular category (parent governor, staff governor etc.).

And what do we do?

The local governing body is responsible for monitoring and accounting for St Chad’s and is is directly accountable to the Board of Directors of the St John Bosco Catholic Multi Academy Company.

The way in which we do this:

The Governing Body is responsible for ensuring the successful delivery by the Principal of the day to day operational matters affecting the daily life of the schools as delegated by the Board of Directors.

We act as a ‘critical friend’ to the schools, it is our job to decide we are satisfied with the answers and ensure the right action and measures are then taken.

Governors monitor progress of students in each individual schools and report on progress, ensuring accountability between the leadership teams of the schools and ourselves who are accountable to parents/carers and the wider community.
