The Local Governing Board of Notre Dame Plymouth

The Notre Dame Local Governing Board comprises of 9 members. 6 Foundation Governors, 1 Parent Governor and 2 Staff Governors.

The Local Governing Board meets once per term and convenes working groups to look at things such as Standards, Ethos and Admissions.

We are supported as a Local Governing Board by our MAT Central Team at Plymouth CAST who provide advice and support for Governors as well as additional training and updates on legislation, Ofsted and other education areas.

The aim of the Local Governing Board of Notre Dame is to be a critical friend. We support the Senior Leadership Team in the strategic direction of the school and meet regularly with Teachers and Support Staff to offer support and guidance. Governors interact with Students and Staff to obtain a clear picture of the workings within school and help to ensure the progression of the school in accordance with the Mission Statement.

Notre Dame Plymouth is an optimistic school promoting Christian Values,

a school where everyone belongs,

a school which values learning and high aspiration,

a school which rises to challenges and celebrates achievement.

The Local Governing Board strongly believe in the education of every student; Head, Heart and Hands.
