Governors

 Welcome from the Chairman of Governors

 

On behalf of the Governors of The Annunciation I would like to warmly welcome you to our school.

The Governors act in close partnership with the Head Teacher in the management and strategic development of the school. As Governors of a Catholic school, the Foundation Governors have an extra responsibility to ensure that conduct of the school remains true to the values of Catholic education for which the school was founded. The role of the Governors is to decide the school's policy on a wide range of issues including setting budgets, agreeing policies, employment of staff, school premises, the curriculum and the general conduct of the school.

The Governing Body has a general responsibility for managing the school effectively, acting within the framework set by legislation and the policies of the Diocese and the Local Authority (LA). It is not expected to take detailed decisions about the day to day running of the school as that is the responsibility of the Head Teacher and staff.

We who serve as Governors are extremely proud of the standards of achievement of all our pupils and the dedication and commitment of the staff who continue to set high standards for all pupils. The school is part of a thriving community with strong links between home, school and parish. 

Both Governors and Teachers truly appreciate the contribution you as parents make to your child's learning and with your continued support we know your child will be happy and reach their full potential during their time at The Annunciation School.

 

Mrs Michelle Mwangi 

 

Chairman of Governors
