Instrument of Government
Welcome to the Governance Section of St Alban’s Catholic Primary School website.
St Alban’s Catholic Primary School is a large voluntary aided school in the trusteeship of the Diocese of Shrewsbury. It is situated alongside St Alban’s Church in Ashburton Road, CH44 5XB, next to Liscard Town Centre in Wallasey.
The Instrument of Government sets out the Governance structure of the Governing Board. The Instrument was approved by the Diocese of Shrewsbury, made an Order by Wirral Local Authority in May 2015, and came into effect on 1 September 2015. It stipulates that the Governing Body should consist of fourteen Governors, viz: eight foundation, two parent, one headteacher, one staff, one local authority, and one co-opted governor.
Foundation governors shall be appointed and may be removed by the Bishop of Diocese of Shrewsbury. The term of office for every foundation governor shall terminate on 31st August following the third anniversary of the date of appointment.
Any practising Catholic over the age of 18 can become a Foundation Governor; self-nominations can be considered.
Further information on the recruitment of Foundation Governors is given on the Catholic Education Society website.
