Welcome to St Bernadette’s Website. Below is some information that you may find useful – together with a since Thank You to our staff, parents and Community for their ongoing hard work and support.
The key role of our Governing Board is to recruit, appoint and support the best teachers and staff to ensure the highest possible level of education and support for children placed in our care; within a framework of effective Governance.
To achieve these aims we work closely with MK Local Authority (MKLA) and as a Catholic School within the Vision, Values and Policies of Northampton Dioceses (NORES) and the Department for Education (DfE)
This is our governing board structure;
The Governing Board meets monthly with the exception of holiday periods December, March and August. In between Board meetings “Lead Governors” make visits to the school and report to Board on their in-depth findings. Each and every Governor has a “Key Lead” Role to exercise, covering all areas of the school:
St Bernadette’s opened in 2005 and we are particularly fortunate that our school community has shown tremendous interest and support since then.
We are confident as we go forward to meet the challenges and changes ahead that by continuing to work closely with the NORES, MKLA and our parents and local community St Bernadette’s will continue to provide the best education possible in an efficient, effective and transparent manner.
It is this support and the hard work of our staff and Governors demonstrating total commitment to our Values that the school achieved outstanding status in recent Inspections, by OFSTED Inspection in June 2014 and NORES RE in October 2015.
Together we aim to maintain and build upon that success in the year ahead.
