Governing Body

The Governing Body of the school has overall responsibility for determining its aims, plans and policies in accordance with Salford Diocese and relevant legislation.  We have a very active governing body who work hard for the benefit of the whole school community.

 

Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests

 

All the governors and associate members of St. Boniface RC Primary School listed below have signed the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests

 

This is a declaration of any personal or business interest they or any relative or person closely connected with them, have with businesses or other organisations that may have dealings with the school. This could for example include owning or having a relative work for a business that had dealings with school; having a relative working in or for school or being a governor of another school.

 

If any interest a governor has could be seen to cause a conflict of interest they would be asked to withdraw from any decision making concerned. This is to ensure that our governors can always be seen to be putting the interest of the school first.

 

If there is a potential conflict it is shown in the table. This table also shows the category of governor each person is, any specific role on the governing body and the committees they are members of.

 

More information about the requirements to complete and sign the Register of personal, pecuniary or business interests can be found on Salford City Council’s Governor Services web pages at http://www.salford.gov.uk/schoolgovernors.htm where you will also find the links to all the other local authority’s (LA) governing bodies’ personal, pecuniary or business interests registers.

The different categories of governors on our governing body are:

  • parent governors who have a child in school at the time of their election, and are elected by the parents with children at the school;
  • staff governors who are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues;
  • foundation governors, who are practising Catholics and are nominated by the Parish Priest and appointed by the Bishop;
  • local authority(LA) governors who are nominated by the local councillor and appointed by the governing body;
  • the Headteacher (HT) is also a member of the governing body by right of the position they hold in the school;
  • associate members are not actually governors but can be appointed to serve on committees and attend meetings of the full governing body. They do not have the right to vote at meetings of the full governing body but may be given voting rights on the committees that they are a member of, but these rights can only be given by the governing body.

The different committees our governing body has are:

  • monitoring;
  • admissions
  • staffing and finance;
  • curriculum;
  • health and safety
  • school improvement
  • 5 W’s

 

  • There are also separate disciplinary and appeals committees which are convened if they are required.
