Governor Committee Details

Our Governing Body Committees and Their Roles and Responsibilities

 

Full Governing Body

All Governors are members of the Full Governing Body and are expected to attend a minimum of three meetings per school year. There are different kinds of Governors:

 

The different categories of governor are:

 

• parent governors who have a child in school at the time of their election, and are elected by the parents with children at the school. If there are insufficient nominations from parents to fill the vacancies, the governing body has to appoint parents

 

• staff governors who are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues. This category includes the Headteacher (who serves in an ex-officio capacity), teaching and non-teaching staff. Unlike parent governors, when a member of staff leaves the school he/she must also leave the governing body

 

• co-opted governors are appointed on to the governing body by the other members because they come from a specialist group, such as the business community or because they possess a particular skill which can contribute to the effective governance and success of the school

 

• foundation governors who are appointed by the school's founding body, which in most cases is the Church. This category of Governor must be in the majority at every meeting

 

• authority governors who are nominated by the local councillor and appointed by the governing body

 

• associate members are not actually governors but can be appointed to serve on committees and attend meetings of the full governing body. They do not have the right to vote at meetings of the full governing body.
