Governors' zone

Welcome to our governors' section.

 

We are very lucky at Holy Spirit to have an active and committed board of Governors who work very hard on behalf of the school. The Governing Body meets each term. There are a number of Committees which focus on areas of school life, for example: Staffing and  Finance, Teaching, Learning and Curriculum and Premises and Safeguarding. The committees also meet each term. The Governors are responsible for ensuring all children get a really good education at our school. The term of office for Governors runs for 4 years. Governor elections for Parents take place when a vacancy arises. All governors have voting rights on committees with the exception of any Associate governors.
