Boards of Management (BoM) of primary schools are appointed for a four-year term. The current BoM is in office from 1 December 2015 to 30 November 2019. The Board manages the school on behalf of the Patron (the Roman Catholic Bishop of the Limerick Diocese) and is accountable to the Patron and the Minister. The Board must uphold the characteristic spirit (ethos) of the school and is accountable to the Patron for so doing. The Principal is responsible for the day-to-day running of the school, the teaching and learning which takes place in the school, and the guidance and direction of the staff of the school.
Meetings are held five to seven times in the academic school year. Invitations to submit items for the Agenda are circulated to all members of the Board a week in advance by the Secretary (DM). The meetings are usually held in the school and minutes are recorded by the Secretary. All financial transactions pertaining to the school are documented in Big Red Book, and overseen by the Treasurer of the BoM. Accounts are audited and certified at the end of each academic year.
