Welcome to Our Lady’s RC Primary School.
I am writing to introduce myself as the Chair of Governors at Our Lady’s. It is an honour and a privilege to be appointed Chair of Governors at Our Lady’s as I was a pupil here myself and my own 3 children also attended the school. I have been part of the Governing Body since 1994 when I was elected as a Parent Governor. In latter years, I was appointed as a Foundation Governor by Cardiff Diocese and have been Vice-Chair for the last 2 years.
As a part of the Governing Body I share a common objective which is, the wider school community – working in partnership with you as parents and carers and staff to ensure that every child can succeed and reach their full potential. The Governing Body has 3 specific roles, which are:
We work closely with Mrs.Woolaway and the school staff to ensure that your children receive the highest standard of care and education.
We are a ‘voluntary aided school’ which means that in order to enjoy the opportunity of educating our children within a Christian setting we are obliged to pay 10% of any building projects. By sending your child to Our Lady’s, you accept that you have a responsibility which you cannot leave to others. Parents and Carers are asked to help the Governors meet these responsibilities with a termly donation of up to £15.
Finally, in order to carry out our role as Governors effectively, we need to know what issues are important to you. If you have any views to share please let us know – we can be contacted via the school office or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
