Meet the Governors

Welcome to our governors' section.

We are extremely lucky at St Robert Bellarmine to have an active and committed board of Governors who work very hard on behalf of the school. The Governing Body meets each term. There are a number of Committees which focus on areas of school life. Our main committees are Staffing, Finance and Premises, Curriculum and Safeguarding. The committees also meet each term. There are a number of other committees which meet less regularly or as and when the need arises. Each committee consists of at least 3 governors along with the Headteacher.

The governors have a very important role- they are responsible for ensuring all children get a really good education at our school. The governors receive information which helps to evidence how the school is performing. This is analysed and discussed at the committees and at the Full governing body meeting. It is their job to monitor the performance of the school and to hold the headteacher and staff to account.

 The term of office for Governors runs for 4 years. Governor elections for Parents take place when a vacancy arises.
