Welcome to the Governors’ Section of the St John’s Juniors website. The governors of St John’s 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
-checking 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 Head teacher.
Additionally, the Foundation Governors have a legal duty to:-
-preserve the Catholic character of the school
-develop this Catholic character
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 may use our e-mail address or leave a message at the school’s office.
