Meet the Governors

A Word from the Chairman of Governors - Mr Dov Black

Broughton Jewish Cassel Fox Primary School traces its origins back to the Cassel Fox Infant School  and the Broughton Jewish Primary School which were established in 1943 and 1947 respectively.  Since the 1940s, the School has been at the forefront of Orthodox Jewish primary school education in Manchester and since its founding the School has stayed true to its emphasis on ‘Torah I’m Derech Eretz’.  In 1984 the two schools merged and in 1997 the School moved into its current campus on Legh Road in Salford.

In August 2012 , the School was granted Academy status by the Secretary of State, the right honourable Michael Gove MP – an indication of the high academic, sustained standards that the School has maintained over  the years.

In January 2013 , the School appointed a new Principal Rabbi Yehuda Pearlman. In February 2017, the School appointed a new Deputy Head for Teaching and Learning, Miss Nicola Taylor to work alongside Rabbi Pearlman.

The role of the school governor and governing bodies

School governing bodies are responsible for working with the school to ensure that it delivers a good quality education. Together with the headteacher, who is responsible for day-to-day management, they set the school's aims and policies.

Key roles of governors:

  • To ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • To hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
  • To oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent

They also carry out a number of other important duties, which include:

  • Determining how the school's budget is spent
  • The appointing and dismissing of staff
  • Hearing appeals and grievances
  • Forming policy on the school's curriculum and collective worship
  • Setting standards for pupils' behaviour and discipline
  • Making sure school buildings are welcoming and safe
  • Setting and monitoring the school's aims and policies
