Annual Governance Statement
In January 2014 the Department for Education (DfE) published departmental advice in relation to the School Procedures regulations (2013). A number of additional recommendations, not mentioned in the Procedures regulations, were made in the advice document, including reference to the publication of an annual governance statement.
Our Lady of Lourdes publishes this document annually to support parents in their understanding of how the Governing Body works. The Governance Statement has been checked by Birmingham Audit (2016) for appropriateness.
