Meet the Governors

Every maintained school has a governing body.  It comprises of:

  • Parent Governors; parents elected by other parents at the school
  • Staff Governors; teachers elected by their colleagues
  • Local Authority Governors; people appointed by the County Council
  • and usually, the Headteacher.

They may also include representatives from the support staff, a church, charitable trust or business interests, and the local community. The Governing Body are led by the Chair, supported by a Vice Chair.  Governors are unpaid volunteers appointed for a (renewable) maximum term of four years.  The governing body usually meets at least once every half term.
