St. John's School Governors
Welcome to the Governors' section.
The purpose of the governing body:
The governing body is the school’s responsible body. It operates at a strategic level with three main responsibilities:
1. Ensuring clarity of the Catholic vision, ethos and strategic direction;
2. Holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance and Catholic character of the school and its pupils; and
3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent
Our school's governing body is made up of 4 different categories of governors:
There are seven Foundation Governors. Foundation Governors are practising Catholics appointed by the Bishop of the Diocese of Portsmouth.
Local Authority Governors:
There is one Local Authority Governor appointed by the Local Authority.
There are two Parent Governors who are elected by the parents of children who attend the school.
There is one staff Governor (who can be a teacher or non-teacher) who is elected by other staff.
