So what does the governing body at More Park do? Who are we? Why are we here? These are possibly questions you may have; hopefully this page will answer some of them!
 
A governor is someone who voluntarily makes a commitment and contribution to the school and works as part of a team to benefit the school as a whole.
 
The headteacher is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school. Governors have three main roles: to provide strategic direction for the school; to act as a critical friend to the headteacher; and to ensure accountability. In conjunction with the headteacher, the governing body ensures the continual development, forward momentum and improvement of the school and seeks to achieve an environment in which pupils feel safe, nurtured and valued and are given the opportunity to achieve their fullest individual potential. A job description is available to view at the bottom of this page.
 
The governing body work with the headteacher to review and confirm priorities to continually develop the school using all available information; this helps to create a working 'School Improvement Plan' which can be used to measure the progress the school makes over each academic term and school year. The governing body also discusses and consults with the headteacher when making strategic decisions determining how the school's budget is spent, developing policies for all aspects of school life including admissions, health and safety, behaviour and discipline and the school building.
 
The governing body at More Park consists of elected parent governors, foundation governors to support the catholic ethos of the school, co-opted community governors, teacher governors, the Parish Priest and the headteacher. 

Minutes of the Governing body meetings are available to view in the school office, on request.
