Governors Statement

St Christopher's is a Roman Catholic Primary School in the Diocese of Salford.

The Governing Body is dedicated to steering the strategic direction of the school by empowering the Headteacher, children and all staff to achieve their vision as follows:

 

FAITH: To give our children a Catholic faith that supports and guides them in today’s society. To ensure that our children understand and appreciate other faiths and cultures in our locality.

FRIENDSHIP: To be a school that is a happy family where everyone works as a team and knows how to be a good friend. They value and take an interest in the wider community and the city in which they live. 

KINDNESS: To understand that being kind to others, grateful and positive leads to true happiness. They appreciate and know the importance of the environment and how to look after it.

COURAGE: A school where children have high expectations; know the value of hard work and being healthy. They are positive, motivated and resilient individuals. They enjoy being challenged; learning new things and are not scared to fail. They will always try and be the best version of themselves.

 

We act as "critical friends" to the Headteacher and Senior leadership Team, reviewing the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff.

We oversee the financial performance of the school ensuring money is appropriately spent.
