The Governing Body of The Blessed Sacrament Catholic Primary School is an integral part of our leadership structure, enabling strategic direction, robust accountability, assurance and oversight of the financial and educational performance of the school. Governors work collaboratively with the Headteacher, school staff, Diocese of Lancaster and Lancashire County Council to realise the Mission Statement of the school.

Whilst the Headteacher is responsible for the day to day management of the school, the Governing Body has an important strategic oversight in three core areas:

Setting Strategic Direction

  • Clarity of vision and ethos

  • Engaging stakeholders

  • Ensuring statutory duties are met

Ensuring Accountability

  • Accountability for teaching, achievement, behaviours and safety

  • Strengthening and supporting school leadership

  • Performance managing the Headteacher

  • Contributing to school self-evaluation

Maintaining Financial Probity

  • Enabling financial efficiency

  • Monitoring resources and challenging budgets.

Each year, the governors are required to prepare a report for the parents giving an account of the way they have discharged their duties towards the school. Find this and other relevant documents from our Governing Body below:
