In the Catholic school, standards are infused by a distinctive Catholic ethos. Boarding establishments require commitment to the ethos, in conformity with the school's mission and aims, and in keeping with the continued pursuit of the mission.
Serving Catholic Schools has been developed to assist people who serve on Catholic School Governing Bodies in Public Schools on Private Property, and for Boards of Governors of Independent Schools. It aims to ensure a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved in governance.
Signs of God’s Presence offers Catholic schools a way of evaluating and strengthening their distinctive religious character. Suggestions on who should do this, and how it should be done, are made. Indicators designed to focus the awareness of the school’s community and how its ethos is expressed through its policies, programmes and practice are provided.
