School Governors make decisions about how the school is run. Full Governor meetings are held termly but there are various sub-committees e.g. Finance, Premises, Staffing and Curriculum which also meet regularly throughout the year. Governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They act together to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the school.
School Governors can be parents, school staff, LEA representatives or community representatives. You will be notified as and when Parent Governor positions become vacant and about the election process. Parent Governors must have a child at the school and are selected by the parents of the school.
