English Martyrs Catholic

Primary School

A Learning Community in Christ


Welcome to our Governors’ section. 


The aim of the Governors at our school is to work with the staff in helping the children achieve their full potential in a happy, caring environment.
We do this in four main ways:

  • Planning ahead and monitoring the performance and progress of our children so that our school continues to improve.
  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff.
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
    The Headteacher of the school is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school and for operational matters.

Update from the Governing Body

Results of the Parent Survey, Autumn 2017


In November 2017, we conducted our annual parent survey to find out about parents’ perceptions of our school. We would like to thank all parents who completed the survey and you will find a summary of the results below.

In total we received 151 responses. Anything that scored over 90% we took as being very positive and therefore we have focused on the 2 areas that fell below this – behavior and communication. Both these areas have been incorporated within our School Improvement plan for the year.

A review of our positive behaviour policy and what we communicate has already started – please keep giving us feedback.

Once again thank you for taking part in the survey, it enables us to focus on areas that are important to you.
