St Mary’s Governing Body
St Mary’s Governing Body is a positive and deeply committed group of parishioners, parents and staff.
Supporting the school with energy and determination, through a time of turbulence and change, the Governing Body has been a source of continuity and support.
Following on going external review, alongside direction and support from Plymouth CAST, the Governing Body is responding to the request to be a source of encouragement and information but also of challenge to ensure that the children and families of St Mary’s receive the education they deserve.

PLYMOUTH CAST MULTI Academy Trust
Plymouth CAST Information
Plymouth CAST (Catholic and Anglican Schools Trust)
Our School is one of thirty-five schools within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Plymouth. The Trustees of the Diocese made a decision to convert all Diocesan Schools into a multi academy trust, meaning that some of our support services will be centralised and that we have left LA control.
Our school became a member of the Plymouth Catholic Anglican Schools Trust in April 2014. This arrangement removed our school from the Local Authority and our voluntary aided status has been replaced by Academy status. The Multi Academy Trust is overseen by a Board made up of Diocesan officials, trustees, and Head Teachers. This is an exciting development for our schools and will help to ensure that the Catholic mission is retained and developed. The fundamental ethos and the organisation of our school remains the same. Because the change offers greater financial stability for all schools within the Academy trust, the work of the school continues uninterrupted.
We were very proud to agree to join all Catholic school in the Diocese of Plymouth in our shared vision of being a community of schools with God at the centre; schools where everyone who is part of the community can feel valued and respected.
All of our schools seek to provide excellent education, pastoral care and spiritual formation for all the children and adults who make up the communities of our schools.
Plymouth CAST is committed to our Catholic mission while contributing to support education in the South West, working with other schools and learning networks to serve the Common Good.
