St. Paul's Catholic Primary School

St Paul's Governing Body 

Governors of St Paul’s have the responsibility to promote and maintain the school’s Catholic character and mission.

They have overall responsibility for supervising the strategic direction of the school, and their main aim is to improve outcomes for all pupils by raising standards and driving improvement.

The full Governing Body normally meets twice a term. They carry out much of their function through their committees, which meet regularly throughout the school year. These include Admissions, Curriculum & Pupil Welfare and Resources.
