Christ The King RC Primary School



Governing Boards of Catholic voluntary aided schools are the employers and admissions body for the school. The board consists of members drawn from a range of backgrounds including parents, staff, the local authority, the parish and wider school community.

Our governors have built a successful partnership with the teachers and parents at the school. This has allowed the Governing Body to work together with the school community for the benefit of the children at Christ the King.

'Governors offer effective challenge and support to leaders.' -Ofsted


The Governing Body includes two Parent Governors elected by the parents of the school.  It also includes a Staff Governor, elected by the school’s staff.  These governors serve for a period of four years.  There are also Foundation Governors appointed for a four year period by the Diocese of Salford.  In addition, there is an LA Governor appointed by Manchester City Council.
