Local Governing Body:

The Springhill Catholic Primary Governors form an integral part of the school leadership and have much responsibility in terms of setting the direction of the school, approving delegated funding and appointing staff. The members are elected or nominated by a number of interest groups.

The chair of the Board of Governors is Ged Riley. There are regular meetings, once every half term. Discussion topics include headteacher's report, chair of committee report, reports from sub-committees, effectiveness of the board and school (self evaluation), child protection, training and school council.
