I would like to welcome you to Saint Anne's Catholic Primary School website. As Governors we feel that the links between the school and home are vital. We hope that you will find this site useful.

Saint Anne's School is a Voluntary Aided School administered by a Governing Body. Our Governors consist of the following:

  • Parents of children who attend the school (parent governors);
  • Staff of the school (teaching and non-teaching governors);
  • People appointed from the parish community (foundation governors);
  • People appointed by the local council (LA governors).

As Governors we are involved in Saint Anne's School working on a variety of committees which help in the smooth running of the school: Curriculum; Premises and Buildings; Finance, Personnel and Staffing.

The Governing Body meets regularly and formulates and approves policy on all aspects of school life including Admissions, Discipline and Conduct, Attendance and Punctuality, Religious Education and the National Curriculum.

We, like you, have the best interests of the pupils and school at heart and we hope we can all work together to support Saint Anne's School.
