Governance

The Holy Family School is an Academy within the Kent Catholic Schools Partnership, whose aim is to protect and promote Catholic education in Kent. We work with the Partnership and with other member schools to provide the best education we can for our pupils. Some decisions are taken by KCSP (or The Trust, as it is known), bu there are many responsibilities that fall to the Local Governing Body of Holy Family School.
 
Governors are there to support and challenge the school as it strives to help each child achieve. They are also bound to monitor that the school is fulfilling its statutory duties such as Safeguarding, Health and Safety and meeting the needs of children with additional educational needs. Being a governor is a voluntary, unpaid role and can be a huge commitment but is very satisfying when seeing the children safe, happy and doing well.
 
We meet quite often as a full Governing Body and in smaller groups for specific topics. We also visit the school as individuals to find out more and understand better.
 
Governors are always keen to hear the views of parents and other interested parties. A governor usually attends Parent Consultation evenings so that we can hear your views or answer your questions.
If you would like to contact the Chair of Governors in confidence, please leave a message at the school office on 01622 756778 and the Chair will contact you. The Chair’s email may be given if necessary.
 
The members of our Local Governing Body are listed below. We have vacancies and would urge you to consider finding out more and becoming a governor. You will find us very welcoming and helpful.
