Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Multi-Academy Trust Board and the Local Governing Body work with the Executive Headteacher, the Heads of School, Deputy Headteachers and the staff across the trust to ensure the trust provides a good quality of education for all its pupils.
Governors are not expected to make day to day decisions about how the school is run. That's the role of the headteacher and senior staff.
Governors have three main roles:
- to provide strategic direction for the school;
- to act as a critical friend to the headteacher
- to ensure accountability.
Our Trust is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our children and expects all staff to share this commitment.
