Local Governing Body

Update on the faith designation for Cathedral Primary School

As you will be aware we ran a consultation from 14th November 2019 until 10th January 2020 to see whether Cathedral Primary School should adopt a faith designation and become a Church of England school. A report capturing the outcomes of that consultation is included here for information. In March, the governors of CPS and Trustees of CST decided to continue to the next stage of the process and submitted a business case to the Department for Education for them to consider. We can now confirm that the Department for Education has given their approval for CPS to gain a faith designation and we will commence the more detailed work to formalise the designation. It is our expectation that at some point during the next academic year the change will be finalised and we will be working closely with BCCS, CST and Cathedral colleagues on ways we can further strengthen our relationships going forward. We know that some of you were concerned that the change will impact on the vision and ethos of the school and we want to reassure you that we have no intention to alter these core aspects of our school and community. Similarly our admission arrangements will remain the same and we will continue to value and celebrate our inclusivity and diversity. 

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.
