Meet the Governors

Welcome to our Governors section. 


The Board of Governors of St. Peter's and St.Paul's Primary School is made up of enthusiastic and committed people from various parts of our parish who work in close partnership with the staff of the school ,to ensure that each child reaches his/her fullest potential. Those on the Board come from various walks of life and each is dedicated to enhancing the educational experience and outcomes for all those in our care. All are rooted in supporting the role of Catholic education within our parish.


The governors play an important role within school - they provide strategic management, critical challenge and accountability. They appoint the principal and staff, and delegate the daily management of the school to them. They also oversee all recruitment and finance matters, monitor all aspects of the curriculum including educational outcomes, and pay special attention to the handing on of the faith within the school. The governors usually meet once a term but can meet more often as the need arises, e.g. if there are several appointments to be made.
