Welcome to the Governing Board of St John Fisher Catholic Primary School. We are a committed team who are dedicated to raising standards and achieving better outcomes for all our stakeholders. Through strong skills set, knowledge, experience and ongoing training each member of the Governing Body has something vital to bring to the team; Education, Finance, Health & Safety, an understanding of stakeholders views from the staffroom, parents at the gate, strong community perspective.
We are very fortunate in having so many dedicated governors who take their role seriously and regularly attend training to ensure they are up to date with new requirements, legislation and ways of working. Training is very well attended with the expectation that learning is disseminated to all governors.
Governing bodies provide strategic leadership for our schools and have a critical role in making sure every child gets the best possible education. For maintained schools this is reflected in the law, which states that the purpose of governing bodies is to ‘conduct the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement at the school’.
We are constantly building and developing our governance and we are certain with the members we have we will become stronger as a team in delivering a brighter educational experience for our young people.

National Governance Association – Peer Review
As part of our ongoing Continuous Professional Development the Governing Board has been involved in a Peer Review with three other Knowsley schools facilitated by the NGA. This will support governors in improving the overall effectiveness of the Board, thus improving outcomes for our pupils.
The Governing Body is, therefore, rightly proud of the achievements of the school, not only in terms of academic results, but also in the solid foundations it provides in preparing all our pupils for the remainder of their formative education.”
