Overview of Governance


Our Mission Statement

Holy Cross is a Catholic School which seeks to build a closer partnership with parents, the parish, and the wider community. We work hard to provide an environment which is secure, stimulating, and happy, and where everyone is appreciated and enabled to give their best.


We encourage all to have respect for everyone, to be honest, tolerant, just and forgiving and to develop a closer relationship with each other and through this a closer relationship with God.


We recognise Jean Baptiste Debrabant’s vision that;


“A Christian-based education is a sure hope for the future of religion and society”.


The Governing Committee are selected by the ‘Sisters of La Sainte Union’ (Holy Union) who originally founded the school and share their vision. Holy Cross entered a Multi Academy Trust in 2018; Christus Catholic Trust (CCT) and operates a Scheme of Delegation designed to ensure effective leadership and governance at all levels within the Trust. It operates the following structure:

The Members - oversee and hold the Trust Board to account and will ensure that the values of the Trust are upheld including the schools’ religious character and distinctiveness.

The Trust Board - develop the vision and values of the Trust, provide strategic leadership, hold leadership to account and ensure the financial viability of the Trust and each of its schools. The Trust Board is the accountable body, answerable in part to the Secretary of State for Education as well as the Bishop. The Trust Board operate a number of committees to discharge its responsibilities effectively.

Local Governing Committees - The Trust Board delegates some governance decision-making and the day-to-day oversight of school leadership to Local Governing Committees for each school within the Trust.
