Local Governing Body


Our Lady and St. Hubert's is part of Emmaus Catholic Multi Academy Company. As a result, we have a MAC board of directors and a local governing body. 

Our local governing body consists of: 

  • Parents of children who attend the school (parent representatives)
  • Staff of the school (teacher and support staff representatives)
  • People appointed from the parish community (foundation representatives)

All of whom have the best interests of the school at heart and give a great deal of time in support of Our Lady & St. Hubert's School.

The Local Governing Board will: oversee the implementation of the Directors’ strategy, policy and procedures; monitor the effectiveness of the management in running the academy in accordance with the Directors’ strategy, policy and procedures; and report on the impact of the Directors’ strategic framework on the quality of provision, performance and standards of the academy.

The Chair of Our Lady and St. Hubert's is Mr Juan Doblado Pavon

Overall purpose of the committee

  • Provide the assurance that the strategy and policies of the Board of Directors’ are implemented at a local level in the academy.
  • Provide a strong monitoring, evaluation and reporting framework, so the education provided by the academy meets the needs of children in its care.
  • Enable the academy to be accountable for building a strong, Catholic collaborative learning community, rooted in the teachings of Christ and his Church and the values of the Gospel, by ensuring the school form good relationships and effective communication with all stakeholders that benefit the children’s learning, formation, attainment and progress.

Declaration of Business Interest

It is the policy of Our Lady and St. Hubert's Catholic Primary School that Governors and staff not only act impartially, but are also seen to act impartially.

The local governing body and school staff have a responsibility to avoid any conflict between their business and personal interests and affairs and those of the school. There is a legal duty on all our governors to declare an interest likely to lead to questions of bias when considering any item of business at a meeting, and for the representative concerned to withdraw, if necessary, whilst the matter is considered.

In order to put this duty into practice, our Local Governing Body has established a register of pecuniary interests indicating, for all Governors, Staff and the Principal, any business interests. This includes, if appropriate, the company by whom they are employed, directorships, significant shareholdings or other appointments of influence within a business or other organisation which may have dealings with the school.

They include their own interest and those of any member of their immediate family or other individuals known to them who may exert influence. The register page is signed by the Representative/Staff Member. The register enables the Local Governing Body to demonstrate that in spending public money, they do not benefit personally from decisions that they make.
