St Wilfrid's Catholic Primary School Hope in God

School Governors

Have you thought of becoming a Governor for our school?

The Governors of St Wilfrid's School complete a regular skills audit to make sure they have the right people with professional skills to Governor our school. There are three core functions that Governors are responsible for in order to make St. Wilfrid's the best school it can be.


  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

• Holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
• Overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.


All our Governors complete induction training and complete 6 courses through the Local Authority to ensure they have a secure knowledge and understanding of Governance. Each Governor is allocated to a committee and also the Full Governing Board to meet termly to monitor the performance and outcomes for the school. They also attend regular events and are linked to a class. For more information about our Governing Board, please see their board in the main reception area.
