Our primary school celebrates its half-centenary this year. It has therefore now been supporting parents in providing a Catholic education for the children in this parish and beyond, for 50 years.
To continue to do so, it needs new people to join the Governing Body and Bishop Declan is appealing for parishioners to come forward to take on this important ministry. If you, and/or your children, enjoyed the benefits of a Catholic education, then this could be the perfect opportunity to give something back for what you received, by supporting our school in educating the current generation of children.
If you have experience or skills in any of the following:
Finance, Personnel, Buildings/maintenance, Safeguarding, Health & Safety, Analysing data, Education, Literacy, Numeracy or just have a willingness to learn, enthusiasm and commitment and believe in Catholic education, then you could be an ideal candidate to join the committed governing body of our school. Training will be provided by Clifton Diocese and the Local Education Authority.
Please call Ross Swan, Chair of Governors, on 07906918373 or visit https://cliftondiocese.com/news/could-you-be-a-school-governor/
for more information and you can easily apply online via https://schools.cliftondiocese.com/form-2
