The Our Lady of the Angels Local Governing Board currently comprises of 12 members -

6 Foundation Governors, 1 Parent Governor, 2 Community Governors and 1 Staff Governor.

The Local Governing Board meets twice per term.  We are supported as a Local Governing Board by our MAT Central Team at Plymouth CAST who provide advice and support for Governors as well as additional training and updates on legislation, Ofsted and other education areas.

The aim of the Local Governing Board of Our Lady of the Angels  is to support the Senior Leadership Team in the strategic direction of the school and meet regularly with Teachers and Support Staff to offer support and guidance. Governors interact with Students and Staff to obtain a clear picture of the workings within school and help to ensure the progression of the school in accordance with the Mission Statement.


Governors are appointed/elected for a term of four years and can serve for no more than three terms.

    Foundation Governor

    As my surname suggests, I have a Polish background, though I was born and educated in this
    country. For over forty years I have been a teacher of English at Torquay Boys’ Grammar School, on
    the other side of the site that is shared with Our Lady of the Angels School. Both of my sons
    attended the primary school when it was known as Queensway, and both flourished there. My core values are underpinned by my Catholic faith as a member of the parish community at the
    Church of the Assumption of Our Lady in Torquay. I see the public service of school governance as a
    privilege and an appropriate form of Christian action for the common good. In this spirit, I hope that
    I am able to make a useful contribution.
