Governance

The school is governed by an Academy Council.  When St. Stephen’s Catholic Primary School became an Academy on 1st August 2015 it was governed by the Strategic Intervention Board (SIB). The remit of the SIB was to set the aims and objectives for the school.  During 2016/17 the governing body transitioned to an Academy Council with the first Academy Council meeting being held on 7th February.
