The Board of Management is acting on behalf of the patron, in our case Bishop Michael Smith (Bishop of Meath) and in accordance with the regulations of the Department of Education and Skills. It operates as ‘a corporate body’. This means that:
The board acts as one unit in terms of its function in addressing the business of the school.
The elected parents and teacher, once elected, do not act in a representative or communicative role.
BOARD MEMBERS Each member should:
Uphold and support the ethos, culture and traditions of the school.
Be aware of his/her collective and individual responsibilities.
Have a specific role/function in the management of the school.
Support new members in understanding the functions of the board, and the relationship between the board and the pupils, teachers, staff, patron and the Department of Education and Skills.
CONFIDENTIALITY It is essential that confidentiality is respected, and this includes:
Respecting the sensitivity and privacy of individuals within the school community.
Maintaining strict confidentiality on all discussions of the board and its sub-committees, other than information specifically agreed as ‘open information’.
Ensuring that all documentation is filed securely and not shown to, or discussed with, anyone other than those directly involved in the business of the board.
