Local Governing Body

The Local Governing Body meets five or six times a year, usually once every half term.

Once Approved, Minutes from the Local Governing Body Meetings are available on request from the Clerk at clerk@cathedralprimaryschool.org

At the end of 2015/16 Governors agreed that now Cathedral Primary School is part of a Multi-Academy Trust there was no need for separate committees. Instead, items previously covered at the TLS Committee such as assessment data would be part of the Local Governing Body meetings and individual named Governors would meet with Mrs Yarnold as necessary.

Constitution and Schemes of Delegation (for religiously designated schools) can be found here

The Chair of Governors can be contacted via the Clerk at clerk@cathedralprimaryschool.org or write via the school; Cathedral Primary School, College Square, Bristol, BS1 5TS
