Our Governing Board

St. Joseph's Governors are extremely supportive and have the children's best interests and the mission of the school at their heart. The main Governing Board meet at least three times a year. We hope that any issues you may have can be dealt with by the Headteacher.
However, if you would like to contact one of the Governors, please email either: marked for the attention of 'Clerk to the Governors' or Alternatively, Governors are always available for a chat on Parent's Evenings!
