The Board of Management
The Board of Management is acting on behalf of the patron and in accordance with the regulations of the Dept. Of Education and Skills. It operates as ‘one 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
The elected parent will be part of a ‘Body Corporate’ i.e. the Board of Management, whose function it is to manage the school. The two parent nominees contribute to and uphold the decisions and policies of the Board of Management.
