Governance at St Matthew’s
The Governors primary focus is to ensure that all plans and initiatives at St Matthew’s are in the best interests of the learners in our community.
Our Governors play a vital role in ensuring that school leaders have an effective strategy in driving forward school improvement. Through regular meetings and communication, Governors are kept up to date with developments and progress on the school improvement plan, and on other whole school initiatives. They hold the school to account, and are ready to provide constructive feedback to the senior leadership team if needed. Our Governors provide this ongoing support and challenge to all leaders at St Matthew’s, across a number of key areas through a selection of designated committees.
Our Governors are drawn from a wide and varied background, all with skills, knowledge and experiences that compliment that of our school’s leaders, to create an effective team to drive forward school improvement, improving outcomes for all learners, and strengthening our strong catholic community ethos.
