Welcome to the Governors' section!

St Ann's Governing body oversees the school's management and aims to ensure that all children at the school get the best possible education and are able to make the most of all the opportunities that come their way.  It is made up of staff from the school, parents of children at the school, foundation governors appointed by the Diocese, and representatives from the local council.

The Role of the Governing Body:

  • To support the school in meeting the statutory responsibility to provide the best possible education for the individual pupil.
  • To be fully accountable to those who establish and fund the school and also to parents and the wider community for the way in which it carries out its functions as a governing body.
  • To act at all times in accordance with the requirements laid down in Acts of Parliament and statutory regulations.
  • To maintain and develop the ethos and reputation of the school.
  • To act with due regard for the well-being of children in supporting the activities of the school.
  • To ensure the school's interests are properly represented at a local and national level wherever and whenever appropriate.
