 The Academy Council  at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School exists in accordance with our legal obligations, we endeavour to operate at a strategic level, leaving the School’s senior leadership responsible and accountable for the operational day-to-day running of the School. It is by achieving these aims that we can be sure that our School has effective governance.

Our core strategic functions , therefore, are in:

  1. Ensuring clarity of Catholic vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  2. Holding the appropriate senior leadership to account for the educational performance and Catholic character of the School and its pupils; and for the internal organisation, management and control of the School including performance management of staff; and
  3. Overseeing the financial performance of the School and making sure its money is well spent.

We understand that the Catholic Church expects Catholic schools to promote and uphold high standards, including academic standards as an integral part of its educational vision for the holistic formation of children and young people.
