Our school is committed to safeguarding and promoting
the welfare of children and young people. We expect all
staff, visitors and volunteers to share this commitment.

If you have concerns regarding the safeguarding or
welfare of any of our pupils, please contact Mrs Elder
(Designated Safeguarding Lead), or Mrs Scott
(Deputy Designated Safeguarding Lead).

St Joseph’s participates in Operation Encompass.
Following the report of an incident of domestic abuse,
school will be advised that the child has been involved.

Who's who

Welcome to our Governors’ section.

 

Our team of school Governors work tirelessly with a single goal: To challenge St Joseph’s to improve in every possible way.  Governors meet regularly throughout the school year to make sure they are fully up-to-date with all developments and plan for future improvements. Although they are busy people, they also often visit school during the day to see what is going on and to talk to pupils. Governors give their time freely, if you are interested in being a school governor please contact Mrs Elder at school on 01706873177.

 

Recent Governors’ Visits:

  • Meeting with the children to discuss how safe they feel online
  • Meeting with the children to discuss how safe they feel in school.
  • Online zoom lessons
  • Meetings with Subject Leaders to discuss progress

Governors Committees

 

Each committee meets termly. We have the following committees at St Joseph's RC Primary School.

 

Full Governing Body - All governors are expected to attend this. This meeting focuses on the minutes of all the committee meetings as well as the headteachers report, policies and procedures. 

 

Resources Committee - This committee meets to discuss the schools finances and staffing. 

 

Curriculum Committee - This committee meets to discuss the school curriculum. As of Spring Term 2021 this has been merged with the standards and Effectiveness Committee and the Local Authority Governor has joined.

 

Standards and Effectiveness Committee -  this is a regular meeting between the LA Governor, Chair, Vice Chair and the Headteacher. These meetings are held at least termly but can be held more regularly if needed.
