A centralised approach to school governance
In 2018, the governance of Diocesan Schools’ in the Diocese of Sale was transferred to a newly established entity, being Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Limited (DOSCEL).
Our new governance structure allows Parish Priests to dedicate more of their time to the pastoral and spiritual aspects of their roles. Parish Priests are no longer the employer of school staff.
Operating as part of the mission of the Catholic Church, DOSCEL provides leadership, support, and services in the governance role of schools. It is DOSCEL’s responsibility as a governing body to ensure each school and the secretariat maintains and promotes the Catholic identity of the schools in the Diocese while meeting all legislative and regulatory requirements. This includes a strong focus on embedding and sustaining safe professional environments across all schools and workplaces, as well as a commitment to child safety.
