St Thomas More's Catholic Primary School and Nursery

Ensuring Success. Providing Opportunity. Fostering Stewardship.

This week's Gospel reading reminds us that Christ looks after those who follow him; "Jesus, the Good Shepherd, will not allow anyone to snatch from his care the sheep the Father has given him." John 10: 27-30

Governors

The governing body is made up of fourteen volunteers who are either elected or appointed to represent the views of the community. Governors meet regularly to help the school fulfil its Mission. We do this by getting to know the school, reviewing policies, regulating admissions, planning building work, reading reports and statistics to make sure the school is meeting the needs of all children and monitoring the finance to ensure we have the best value for money possible.

 

The governors are accountable to parents and we do this by meeting annually with parents at a formal meeting, but are always pleased to listen to parents’ views and concerns throughout the year.
