St. Teresa's Governing Body oversees the leadership and management of the school and ensures the best possible education for every child. It is comprised of parent governors, staff governors, local authority representatives and foundation governors appointed by the Diocese of Salford.

In addition to meeting as a whole governing body, governors also have special roles on sub-committees that meet regularly and focus on areas such as standards, buildings, finance and human resources.

They also take responsibility for helping to develop subject areas across the school, in collaboration with the Subject Leaders.



The Role of the Governing Body:


  • To support the school in meeting the statutory responsibility to provide the best possible education for each pupil.
  • To be fully accountable to those who establish and fund the school and also to parents and the wider community for the way in which it carries out its functions as a governing body.
  • To act at all times in accordance with the requirements laid down in Acts of Parliament and statutory regulations.
  • To maintain and develop the ethos and reputation of the school.
  • To act with due regard for the well-being of children and staff in supporting the activities of the school.
  • To ensure the school's interests are properly represented at a local and national level wherever and whenever appropriate.
