Local Governing body
The role of the Local Governing Body (LGB) is to challenge and support the leadership of our school.
At St Francis Xavier the LGB play a key role in shaping how strategy translates into policy and practice. From September 2021 a link governor(s) oversees each of the following areas
- Quality of Education
- Pupil Premium
- Leadership and Management
- Personal Development
- Behaviour and Attitudes
The link governors meet with members of staff, parents, and pupils to gain a deep understanding of each area and triangulate findings before reporting back to the wider LGB.
Governors also take part in an annual ‘Immersion Day’ in school which focuses on key priorities.
The LGB is a subcommittee of the St Margaret Clitherow Trust board.
