Cheadle Catholic Infant School is a Voluntary Aided school and its Governing Board consists of both appointed and elected governors. 

Governors generally hold office for a period of four years at a time. During their term, they are encouraged to attend training courses and workshops on a comprehensive range of topics provided by the Local Authority and the Diocese and they receive updates on salient issues from a variety of sources.


The Full Governing Body meets officially once per term. There are also various sub-committees. The Teaching and Learning Committee and Resources Committee officially meet termly, although the Resources Committee have additional meetings to approve the budget and to ensure best practice is being followed in managing the school finances.

Foundation Governors:

Foundation Governors at the school represent the interests of the Diocese of Shrewsbury. The role of the Foundation Governor is to ensure that the school is clearly recognisable as Christian in its ethos and that its role is seen in the provision for Catholic children of the Diocese.

Foundation Governors are appointed by the Bishop specifically to preserve and develop the Catholic ethos of the school and must be practising Catholics. The governors of a Catholic school work as a team, in close co-operation with the headteacher and all the staff. Foundation governors share the responsibilities of all governors.

Our Foundation Governors are: Mrs Anne-Marie Nugnes, Mrs Clare Shaw, Mr Stephen Leatherbarrow, Mrs Rebecca Brooke, Mrs Veronica Martin and  Mrs Claire Ramsbottom.

Local Authority Governor:

Each Governing Body has one Governor representing the Local Authority. 

Our LA Governor is Mr Jo Peters.

Parent Governor:

Parents of pupils registered at the school are eligible to stand for election as one of the two Parent Governors. They are elected by other parents at the school. 

The current Parent Governors are Ms Joanna Kirk and Mrs Laura Quigley

Staff Governors:

The Headteacher is automatically eligible to be a full member of the Governing Body by virtue of the office. Both teaching and support staff who are paid at the school are eligible to stand as the staff governor. This person is elected by other members of the staff at the school. 

The current Staff Governor is Mrs Sue Boardman.

Associate Governors:

Under Reconstitution, Governing Boards may also have a number of Associate Governors. Whilst it has been agreed that these Governors have the right to vote at sub-committee level, they do not have a vote at the Full Governing Board meetings, nor are they required to attend them. 

We currently have one Associate Governor: Mrs Claire Lees.

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
