St Elisabeth's CE Primary School

Local Governing Body

This school has eleven governors who act  on behalf of St Elisabeth's for the St James & Emmanuel Academy Trust. Please see the page on St James & Emmanuel Academy Trust for more information on the organisation of the Trust and the other schools within it, St Wilfrid's CE, West Didsbury CE Primary School and Didsbury CE Primary School. 

The headteacher is a governor because of her job. She attends the meetings and prepares reports for the governors.

St Elisabeth's CE Primary School is a church school with very strong links to the Parish of St Elisabeth's in Reddish. The Parochial Church Council (PCC) of the church nominate some of our twelve governors, in order that the faith foundation of our school is firmly upheld. We also have a number of community governors. The PCC nominations have to be ratified and approved by the Members of the Trust, who have the controlling interest. For more information on the Members please see the St James and Emmanuel Trust page on this website.

This school has two parent governors both of whom are elected by all the parents. There are also two staff governors. One is the head of the school. One works in the front office at St Elisabeth's CE Primary School. All the people who work in the school vote for the person they want.

The executive headteacher is also a governor who attends the meetings in order to report back to the Trustees. 

This school on occasions also has associate members in order to ensure succession planning is rigorous. All our Governors have enhanced DBS checks.
