Local Governing Committee

Dear Parents/Carers,

On behalf of the local governing committee, I would like to welcome you to St Joseph’s Catholic Infant and Junior Schools’ website.
I have had the privilege of being a school governor for almost twenty years, beginning as a parent governor when my children attended both St Joseph’s Infant and Junior Schools. They were the fourth generation of my family to do so.

I have always loved the warm and special atmosphere of our schools and the Catholic ethos they both share. Similarly, I have always enjoyed being a part of the school communities and as a parent, I always felt my input and opinions were valued and welcomed.
Our current governing committee has a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience and all governors share a genuine passion for Catholic Education.

St Joseph’s Infant and Junior Schools have a tradition of strong Parish and community ties, which we look forward to building upon in our new federation. From our Teeny Mini Vinnies (Infant School) to our Mini Vinnies (Junior School) St Joseph’s is proud to be at the heart of the Catholic community in Birtley.

Michelle Irwin

Chair of Governors of St Joseph’s Federation
