Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
A big welcome from the Governors here at St Augustine’s school. We are proud to be Governors at a school where our children are cared for, supported and given the confidence to “Love and learn together by growing in friendship with Jesus”.
Our Governing body is a diverse group of volunteers coming from a wide range of backgrounds ranging from the Parish, Education, Personnel, Training, Fire service, Finance and the corporate world.
We are here to give our school its strategic direction and to act as a “critical friend” helping to guide our school to provide the highest standard of education for all our children.

Fr Dominic is also a Governor for St Peter's School, part of Our Lady and All Saints Multi-Academy.
