Governors at St Luke’s have an important role to play in the running of the school. The majority of our governors are foundation governors appointed by Bishop Mark Davies, to uphold the Catholic ethos of our school. The remainder are made up of parent governors elected by the parents every three years to provide a parental view and a staff governor, voted for by the staff to provide a staff perspective.

The governors are responsible for setting the vision for our school. Other responsibilities include employment of staff, admissions and management of the building and finances of the school. The head teacher is employed by the governing body to ensure the smooth day to day management and running of the school. The governors work with the head teacher and all staff to make sure every child gets the best possible education and achieves their full potential.

We all work in partnership with The Diocese of Shrewsbury and Cheshire West and Chester Local Authority to ensure high standards, a sound Catholic education and most of all a safe caring environment for learning.
