Welcome to the Governors' section


Welcome to the Governors’ Section of the St Anne’s Catholic Primary School website.

The governors of St Anne’s Catholic Primary School bring their knowledge and experience of different areas of life and  use these to aim for excellence in caring for and educating all the children in our school.


The governors are entrusted with ensuring that the school is run well so as to promote pupil achievement. Their key duties include:-

  • setting the strategic direction the school is to take
  • deciding on the policies
  • selecting the objectives
  • approving the school’s annual budget
  • reviewing the progress made
  • acting as a ‘critical friend’ in both supporting and challenging the Headteacher.

Additionally, the Foundation Governors (7 of the 12) have a legal duty to:-

  • preserve the Catholic character of the school
  • develop this Catholic character
  • ensure that the school is conducted in accordance with its Trust Deed. (An important aspect of this involves supporting and upholding the Catholic ethos of the school).

The governors consider themselves lucky to be blessed with such a strong and positively committed staff as well as a very supportive community which constantly encourages our children to always aim for excellence.

The governors hope that you find this website both useful and informative. If you wish to contact us you are welcome to do so. You can email or leave a message at the school's office.
