Governance and Financial Information

As a Voluntary Aided School our Governors are responsible for the creation and administration of the School's Admissions Policies and for the maintenance and upkeep of the school's buildings, in addition to those matters set out by the 1986 and 1988 Education acts, e.g. curriculum, charging policy for educational activities, budget, access to information, employment of staff, standards of discipline, and Relationships, Sex and Health Education Policy. The school also benefits from the support of two historical Trusts, overseen by the Executive Trustees of SMR with Temple (Executive Trustees Committee) and the SMR with Temple Educational Charity (Educational Charity Committee). These are governed by their respective Trust Deeds and work independently of, as well as in conjunction with, the FGB. The school’s Foundation Governors act as the Trustees.

School policies can be accessed via the Policies page of this website. All queries should be referred to the Clerk to the Governors, Mrs S Josham, by email or by phone 0117 377 2100 (ext 233). Please send any correspondence for Governors to St Mary Redcliffe and Temple School, Somerset Square, Bristol, BS1 6RT.
