GOVERNORS

Governors are involved in all decision making - from very small matters to very important ones.

Our chair of governors recently met with our school council. Our school council asked her lots of important questions about the work of the governors. Please read all about it, here;

School Council with our Chair

All decisions directly affect not just the smooth running of the school, but also its development. New initiatives are often discussed and planned for by governors.  In this way, the governing body is crucial to St Margaret Mary's Catholic Infant School being the dynamic organisation which it has become.

Being a governor at St Margaret Mary's Catholic Infant School:

  • means making decisions which benefit children, parents and staff
  • is an experience which is enriching, rewarding, fulfilling and educating
  • asking tough questions to ensure the best for our children and families
  • involves teamwork
