A vacancy for Foundation Governor on the governing body has arisen at St Teresa's Catholic Primary, an outstanding school in Bristol.

The governors of a Catholic school work as a team, in close co-operation with the Headteacher and all the staff. All governors have the following responsibilities:

In addition to this, foundation governors are appointed to ensure that the religious character of the school is preserved.

Governors perform the most important voluntary role in education and a full and diverse governing body is a source of enormous strength to a school.

Governors provide an external perspective and an ability to challenge assumptions and look for the best solutions. They bring enthusiasm, experience, and expertise from other areas of life and can act together as a well-balanced group of people to effectively support the Headteacher and staff to drive the school forward.
