Holy Rosary And St Anne's Catholic Primary School

Excellence & Enjoyment Together in God's Love

Academy Council

Our Mission Statement: ‘Excellence and Enjoyment Together in God’s Love’

 The  Academy Council of Holy Rosary and St Anne's is a sub-committee of the St Gregory the Great Trust Board. 

Academy Council members have a legal duty to preserve and develop the Catholic character of the school, and a duty to monitor the schools’ statutory compliance as per the Trust’s Scheme of Delegation. 

The ministry of the Foundation Governor is an important one because the preservation of the Catholic character of a school depends on committed Catholics being willing to undertake this service. Bishop Marcus is therefore very appreciative of all those who offer to assist him in this vital task; Please visit the Leeds Diocese website for more information on becoming a Foundation Governor.

‘You have maintained and enhanced a skilful and effective school team, dealing rigorously with any aspects of underperformance.  There is a
tangible drive and sense of urgency to provide high-quality learning opportunities.  These allow pupils to thrive, and show a searing ambition to eradicate second-best.’
