Local Governing Body

Local Governing Body Representatives play a vital role in promoting high standards of educational achievement. They share a common belief that children should receive the best possible standard of education in all areas of their development and help promote the strong Catholic ethos of the school. This is in the interests of current and future pupils. 

Members of the Local Governing Body include:

  • School staff
  • Parents of pupils
  • Members of the public from all walks of life

Governing body members are committed to serving the best interests of the school. As unpaid voluntary public servants, they help to sustain their school’s identity and provide a link with the local community. An effective governing body is a source of enormous strength to the school.

School governance is the most important volunteering role in education.

I became a foundation governor in September 2019. I grew up in Witney but moved away in 1987. I moved back to Witney in 2004 after marrying my husband Dave. I work as a team leader in the operating theatres in a local hospital in Oxford. 

I attend Our Lady and St Hugh's church where I am a Parish Catechist and part of the team teaching the confirmation courses to both young people and adults. 

My interests include music and the arts. I am a member of several choirs and have keen interest in painting and sewing. My responsibilities as link governor are for Religious Education and Health and Safety.
