These academies are part of the Catholic Church and are to be conducted as a Catholic Academy in accordance with Canon Law and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and in accordance with the Trust Deed of the Diocese of Clifton and in particular: 

  1. Religious education is to be in accordance with the teachings, doctrines, disciplines and general and particular norms of the Catholic Church 
  2. Religious worship is to be in accordance with the rites, practices, discipline and liturgical norms of the Catholic Church; and 
  3. At all times the academy is to serve as a witness to the Catholic faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ

Up to 10 Governors recruited for their skills, knowledge, and experience in the following categories: 

  • 6 x Foundation
  • 2 x Staff (including Headteacher (shared role and vote)
  • 2 x Parent

 

The Governors are responsible for fulfilling the three core functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

 

As Catholic Schools, we have Foundation Governors on the Board. Foundation Governors are personally appointed by the Bishop to represent his interests and those of the Catholic community as a whole. As we as sharing the responsibility of the three core functions, Foundation Governors are appointed specifically to ensure:

  • that the religious character of the school is preserved
  • that the school is conducted in accordance with its trust deed
  • that the religious education curriculum is in accordance with the Bishop’s policy for the Diocese.
