St Martin and St Mary Church of England Primary School

Church of England Affiliation

The Diocese of Carlisle is the Church of England in Cumbria, they look after 351 churches and 105 schools.  At our school the two churches, St Martin's C.E. and St Mary's C.E. have equal responsibility for the school and between them appoint some of the governing body.

The governors in conjunction with the LA are responsible for the delivery of the National Curriculum, for the appointment of staff and management of the delegated budgets and for the maintenance of the building.  There is a statutory requirement for parents and teachers to be represented on the governing body.

The governors usually meet twice a term, when necessary additional meeting are called.  Smaller sub-committees of the governing body meet regularly to report to the full governing body.
