Governing Board for a voluntary aided school
St Margaret’s is a Voluntary Aided School. This title means that it is administered by a Board of Governors representing the Parish, the Diocese and the Local Authority.
The Governing Board, who all carry out their duties on a voluntary basis, have a degree of control and responsibility in the running of the school, including responsibility for the buildings. They determine any improvements and enlargement to the premises, subject to Department of Education and Local Edeucation Authority approval. They also have responsibility for setting and monitoring the budget, for the appointment of staff, oversight of the whole curriculum and maintenance of standards in the school.
In return for the privilege of this aided status the Governors have certain financial obligations in respect of insuring the building externally and any external maintenance and improvements.
