Governors

Our school is part of Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust.

The local Governing Committee meets at least once each term and are appointed to:

Lead our Catholic school ensuring that the school's Catholic mission and life are at all times promoted and developed. They are accountable for assuring high quality in the provision of all the curriculum including Religious Education and prayer and worship. They appoint staff who enhance the distinctive nature of the school. They determine and monitor the school's budget and premises. They are responsible for school admissions and attendance.

The Local Governing Committee have further legal duties, powers and responsibilities, including safeguarding and health and safety. They act together, they cannot act individually. 

St Charles' Governors are:

• Foundation Governors appointed by the Bishop
• Parent
• Staff member at the school

Parent Governor:

• has a child in school
• is elected by parents of the school
• serve, as do other governors, for four years
• Parent Governors bring views of parents to the Local Governing Committee, but they speak and act as individuals. They do not vote for all parents in general. They have equal status in the work of the Governing Body and have voting rights.

The Local Governing Committee can be contacted through the Chairperson, Mrs Annmarie Moore, at the school address.
