The Governing Body


St Ignatius Catholic Primary School is a Voluntary Aided school and its Governing Body consists of both appointed and elected governors.


Foundation Governors
Foundation governors at the school represent the interests of the Diocese of Westminster who are trustees of the school. The role of the foundation governor is to ensure that the school is clearly recognisable as Christian in its ethos and that its role is seen in the provision for Catholic children of the Diocese.


Parent Governors
Parents of pupils registered at the school are eligible to stand for election as a parent governor. They are elected by other parents at the school. The school has two elected parent governors.


Staff Governors
The Headteacher is automatically eligible to be a full member of the Governing Body by virtue of the office. Headteachers have the choice of being a governor. Both teaching and support staff who are paid to work at the school are eligible to stand as staff governors. They are elected by other members of the staff at the school. The school has one staff governor.


Local Authority Governors
Local Authority governors are appointed by the Local Authority of Haringey. There is one Local Authority governor at St Ignatius.


Associate Members
There are a number of associate members who attend meetings of the Governing Body at St Ignatius. Their presence provides valuable expertise in a variety of areas. Associate members, however, do not have the right to vote at meetings.


Governors generally hold their office for a period of four years at a time. During this time they have the opportunity to attend training courses and workshops on a comprehensive range of topics provided by the Local Authority and the Archdiocese, and receive updates on salient issues from a variety of sources.


Governors provide guidance and support. The role of a governor is that of a ‘critical friend’, who is there to give direction and focus to the school leadership. The management of the school is the responsibility of the headteacher.


Meetings of the full Governing Body are usually held once a term throughout the school year. Topics covered in meetings may include planning the school’s long term vision through the School Improvement Plan, target setting and monitoring, and the school budget. Much of the work, however, is devolved to a series of committees to ensure the workload is dealt with effectively.


The Governing Body is answerable to parents and the wider community.


Correspondence for the Governors may be addressed to the Clerk to the Governing Body at the school.
