Governors

What do our Governors do?

Our Governing body is a dedicated group of volunteers who meet half termly to share in the leadership and management of our school and its resources. They work alongside our headteacher to ensure that our school continues to grow and flourish. Its various members represent the many stakeholders that have an interest in the success of our school: the Diocese of Westminster, Hertfordshire Local Authority, Holy Rood Parents and school staff. Various governors also meet with subject leaders to discuss the content and impact of each curriculum subject area. During visits they will look at books from various pupils, talk with them to find out what they love about our school and how it could be improved as well as attend assemblies and masses. 

How to get in contact with the Governors ...

If you would like to make contact with our Governing body, you can do so by emailing admin@holyrood.herts.sch.uk and state for the attention of Governors.

NB: Since 1st September 2015, schools are required to publish on their website details of any 'pecuniary interests' held by governors. This means any personal or business interest that could possible cause a 'conflict of interest' in their role as a governor. This information is recorded in the above table.
