Meet the Governors

Welcome to the Governors section of the School Website.

Contact us via the school by e-mail: admin@st-marys-ipswich.suffolk.sch.uk or in writing in an envelope addressed to a named Governor.

 

There are different types of Governors.  Foundation Governors are appointed by the Bishop and are always in the majority in a Voluntary Aided school.  Parent Governors are elected.  Local Education Authority Governors are volunteers who represent the interests of the local community.  Staff Governors represent the interests of the people employed by the school. 

 

The Governing Body

 

Please note - as of January 1st 2018, St Mary's School became an academy as part of the Our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Multi-Academy Trust.  As such, the roles and membership of the Governing Body may be subject to change.  Confirmed details will be available as soon as possible.

Governors Attendance at Meetings

Governors have excellent attendance at all meetings. We have never cancelled a meeting because it was not “quorate” (the number of governors needed to ensure that legal decisions can be made).
