Members of Governing Body

Welcome to the Governors' section of the school website.
A Governing Body has three core responsibilities:
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent. 
In addition, as a Catholic school the governors of St. Joseph's must ensure that religious education and religious worship is in accordance with the teachings, doctrines and norms of the Catholic Church
The Governing Body consists of twelve governors for academic year 2020/21.
