The Diocesan Coat of Arms - Brentwood Diocese

The Board of Governors at Trinity work hard to support, challenge and strengthen the school. Governors take a keen and active interest in all aspects of school life and we do this in ways consistent with our role. 

Foundation Governors are appointed in the name of the Bishop and form the majority of the governing body of a Catholic school. They have a legal duty to preserve and develop the Catholic character of the school and to ensure that the school is conducted in accordance with its trust deed.  Governing boards have three core functions:

  • ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • holding executive leaders to account for the educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff; and
  • overseeing the financial performance of the organisation and making sure its money is well spent.

The ministry of Foundation Governor is an important one, because the Catholic character of our schools depends on committed Catholics being willing to undertake this service. The Bishop is therefore very appreciative of all those who offer to assist him in this vital task.

No governor has a pecuniary interest in the school

Governors are regular visitors, and receive regular training – both as individuals and as a  board – and the Governing Board at Trinity meet twice as often as statutorily required. Governors are fully apprised of school issues and receive formal training on matters such as child protection, equality and employment law. Governing Board meetings are characterised by a rigorous and detailed approach to school business and take place in a friendly and supportive atmosphere. The Governing Board has a full complement of Foundation, Local Authority, Parent, Staff and Co-opted members and a number of Governors have long and very distinguished associations with the school.


How to contact us

As Governors, we are not involved in the day-to-day running or management of the school. The day-to-day running and management of the school are matters for the Headteacher and
his senior team.

Parents with specific ideas or concerns about any school-related matter should share these with the relevant member of staff (for example Subject Teacher, Form Tutor, Chaplain, Subject Leader, Year Leader, Assistant Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher or Headteacher).

In unusual circumstances, matters for the attention of the Governing Board may be referred to the Clerk to the Governors at the address below.
