The Constitution of Governing Bodies of Maintained Schools
Governors help to make decisions about how our school is run. They attend at least two meetings a term and these meeting are held in school. As well as being a member of the Governing Body, governors are also members of at least one sub-committee. Most committees meet once a term.
Governors are appointed to help:
School governors have legal duties, powers and responsibilities. They can only act together, they can not act individually.
When a vacancy for a parent governor is available parents are informed and nomination forms sent out.
New governors are encouraged to attend training to help them fulfil their role. A comprehensive range of training courses are run by the LEA.
