Our Governors

The Governors at St Joseph's

Our Governors are drawn from the local community and freely give their time and expertise in order to support the work of the school.

Governor Types

There are several different categories of Governor:

  • Foundation Governors are appointed by the Diocese;
  • Parent Governors are appointed by self-nomination and parent vote where necessary;
  • Staff Governors are appointed by self-nomination and staff vote where necessary;
  • Local Authority and Co-opted Governors are appointed by the Governing Board.

We are blessed to have a committed and multi-talented Governing Board with a wide variety of experience and expertise.
