Welcome to the Governors' section.

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.

The Governing Body works closely with the Headteacher, staff, pupils and parents to make sure that St Peter’s provides a good quality of education for all its pupils.


Governors have three main roles:


  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the Academy and making sure its money is well spent.


The Governing Body has a formal meeting of all governors once a term. Monitoring pairs of governors meet to discuss the school curriculum, achievement, SEN, behaviour, personnel, finance, health and safety. At certain times the governing body may ‘commission’ assignments or activities according to the priorities of the School Improvement Plan or in response to local or national initiatives.


Governors regularly visit the school to celebrate and enjoy performances, teaching and learning and school events such as Mass.  They regularly attend training and courses to enable them to carry out their duties more effectively.



Parents are welcome to contact governors through the school office or email the Chair of Governors using the contact form below.
