Boards of Management
The appointment of a new Chairperson of a Board of Management is only made after consultation with the Patron. The Patron is then responsible for informing the DES of the change. It is very important that this form is completed and returned as soon as the Patron has agreed to the appointment of a new Chairperson.
• It is important that all Boards have full membership and that any vacancies are filled as soon as possible. Please refer to the Governance Manual 7:3; 7:4 and 7:5 for further information. You can also contact your parish priest or the Diocesan Office if you need any assistance in this.
• When a new member takes their place on the Board please ensure that Form 2 is updated and a copy placed in the Minute Book
• You must also complete a Change of BOM Chairperson or Member form & return to [email protected] as soon as possible.
Child Safeguarding - Mandatory Template 4
Boards of Management are required to conduct an annual review of the Child Safety Statement and to notify the Patron that this has happened. Once this review has taken place Mandatory Template 4 must be completed and returned to [email protected] to fulfil the requirement to notify the Patron. An acknowledgment of the notification will be sent to the chairperson and principal. This should be placed on record as it may be required as evidence by the Inspectorate in the event of a CPSI. Notification of the Annual Review for 2020/2021 must be submitted on or before October 27.
Please use the forms below when requesting Patron Approval for the Selection Panel and for the approval of all teacher appointments of 24 weeks or more.
It is important to use one form for each named teacher whose appointment approval is being sought. This is to facilitate the placing of these forms in each teacher employment record file.
Please note that all teachers appointed to teach in our schools must hold a recognised qualification to teach Religious Education. If a teacher on the Permanent Panel does not hold such a qualification please contact Maeve - [email protected]

When making these appointments Patron approval for the Interview Board must be sought in advance of the interview process.
