Welcome to the Governors’ section!

The Governing Board works in partnership with the Headteacher to provide leadership, to promote high standards and secure the best possible education for every child in school. We are supported by the Diocese and the LEA, as we work to deliver our mission statement,

‘pupils learn and grow, achieving their full potential within the school setting, as part of the Christian family and as members of the wider community.’

While the Headteacher is responsible for the day to day management of the school, Governors have an important strategic role, with specific responsibilities in three core areas:

  • Setting the school’s 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 that money is well spent.

As a Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School, our governing board has 12 members and is made up as follows:

  • Parent Governors: 2
  • Headteacher: 1
  • Staff Governor: 1
  • Local Authority Governor: 1
  • Foundation: 6 ( appointed by Blackburn Diocese, with 3 nominated by Principal Officiating Minister and 3 by the Parochial Church Council)
  • Ex-official 1 (vacant at present)

The full Governing Board meets four times a year and has three working committees, which meet once each term to consider various aspects of the school in detail.
