St Mary’s R.C Primary School ‘Faith in Education’

Governors

St. Mary’s Board of Governors

 

We are fortunate to benefit from the active involvement of a governing body representing our school, our parents, the parish and our LEA. They meet regularly to support and challenge the Headteacher and staff to ensure that the high standards associated with and expected at St Mary’s are maintained and that we offer our pupils an excellent education. 

The chairperson for our Governing Body is Mrs C. McLean and the vice-chair is Ms. Lou Laggan , both of 

whom can be contacted, in writing, via the school at:

St Mary´s RC Primary School, Farringdon Road, North Shields. Tyne & Wear. NE30 3EY.

Our Governing Body meet as a full body half termly, equating to 6 meetings annually.  We have a Resources (R) committee which incorporates finance, staffing, health and safety and premises, a Pupil Achievement and Curriculum committee (PAC) who are responsible for curriculum, pupil progress and communications, an Admissions Committee (A) and a Performance Management committee (PM) who also conduct pay review.  These governor committees meet regularly to discharge their responsibilities.

 

Below is a table outlining our Governing Bodies structure and remit.
