Our Governing Body

The Governing Body of St Martin of Porres Catholic Primary School is made up of individuals representing the Parish, the Local Authority and the School.  The Governors are responsible for ensuring the school's commitment to our Catholic ethos in nurturing our children in a safe, warm and caring environment within which all children can learn and develop.

Our Governors work closely with the Executive Headteacher and the Head of School in the development of the school. They monitor every aspect of school life and make sure that the school offers the very best experience and opportunity for each child. Governors are responsible for monitoring the progress of children, the curriculum, the buildings and the budget. They ensure the school is a safe and healthy environment for all children and are responsible for the implementation of the safeguarding and child protection policies.

The Governors meet every half term as well as in Committees for Finance, Progress & Achievment and Admissions.
