St. Joseph’s Governors


If you would like to contact Andrew Brett, Chair of the Academy Committee of Governors please write to him at the school address or email: 


Governors are volunteers who work in partnership with their school’s Executive Principal to ensure that children receive the best education possible. Governors represent the largest volunteer group in the UK and are selected from a variety of backgrounds to reflect the many interest groups within our schools.


Our role as Governors is to support the school, being prepared to account for the school’s overall performance. We also act as ‘critical friends’, which means offering constructive advice, a sounding board for ideas, a second opinion on proposals and help where needed. Governors are there to set the school’s ethos and strategic direction. We are also expected to hold the school’s Head teacher to account for the performance of staff and children, and to ensure that public money is being well spent.


Foundation Governors are appointed by the Archdiocese of Southwark to preserve and develop the Catholic ethos of the school and help deliver outstanding spiritual, moral and learning outcomes for its children.


The Governing Body is also made up of Parent Governors, Staff Governors and Co-Opted Governors if required.
