Christ the King Catholic Primary school is part of St. Nicholas Postage Catholic Academy Trust: http://www.npcat.org.uk/governance-structure-and-remit/#
The governing body of Christ the King has key responsibilities of authority delegated from the Trust.
As governors we have high expectations for our school. We are the strategic leaders and play a vital role in making sure every child gets the best possible education. The main purpose of a maintained school governing body is to ‘conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school’.
The Governing Body plays a key strategic role, which focuses strongly on holding the Headteacher to account and avoiding being drawn into direct involvement in operational matters. It is our job to make sure that we set the school’s strategic framework and ensure that it meets all of our statutory duties. We agree the priorities for the school along with the aims and objectives, we approve policies, plans and targets and also review them regularly to ensure that progress is being made.
Our fundamental concern is to ensure our children are safe and benefit from a Catholic Education.
Our three core strategic functions are:-
- i) Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- ii) Holding the leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and the performance management of staff
iii) Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
The school land and the buildings belong to the Diocese which is the charitable foundation, however the governing body is responsible for ensuring the school building is safe and maintained regularly.
The Local Governing Body as a whole meets on a termly basis.
Minutes of these meetings are made available for public inspection and can be obtained by contacting a member of the school office staff.
