The Governors:

  • appoint teaching and support staff
  • promote good relationships with parents and the community
  • set and monitor the school budget
  • work with the Diocese to maintain and improve the school buildings
  • ensure that the National Curriculum is provided to all children in the school
  • decide certain school policies eg sex and relationships, special educational needs, behaviour and exclusions

The Headteacher of the school, in consultation with the Governors, is responsible for the internal organisation, management and discipline of the school. The Governors attend committee meetings once a term, followed by a meeting of the full Governing Body.

Register of Governor’s Business Interests

Under the County Council’s Financial Scheme, every governing body is required to establish and update a register of governors’ business interests.  This means that governors and headteachers must register and declare business interests that might relate to their duties.  The register was updated in the Autumn Term 2022 with the following declarations:

Fr. M.Barrett - Governor at All Hallows Catholic High School

Mrs A Ashcroft - Governor at All Hallows Catholic High School

Mr D Callaghan - Employee at Romeo Catholic Academy Trust
