ST AMBROSE CATHOLIC ACADEMY – LOCAL GOVERNING BOARD
Role of the Local Governing Board
The LGB provides strategic direction and acts as a “critical friend”, supporting and also challenging the school to improve continuously. It monitors and evaluates pupil progress, has overall responsibility for the school budget and contributes to school development plans. As St. Ambrose Catholic Academy is an academy with a religious character, the governing body is the employer and has a legal responsibility to ensure that the school is conducted according to Christian values and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Role of the Headteacher
The Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation and day-to-day management and control of the school and the implementation of the strategic framework established by the Governing Body.
Our Foundation Governors are those appointed by the Archdiocese of Liverpool.
The Headteacher is a Governor by virtue of office.
The Staff Governors are employed by the school and are elected by the staff.
Parent governors are elected by other parents at the school. Any parent or carer of a registered pupil at the school at the time of election is eligible to stand for election as a parent governor. Parent governors may continue to hold office until the end of their term of office even if their child leaves the school.
