School Governors are the largest volunteer group in the country and come from all sorts of backgrounds. Our Governing Body is made up of different types of Governors including Co-Opted, Parent & Local Authority and more information can be found within our Instrument of Government and Governing Body appointments
Regulations set out that there must be 7 members as a minimum with no upper limit and our Governing Body is currently comprised of 14 Governors. Governors can be contacted via the School office e-mail: email@example.com and our Chair of Governors can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

3 x Achievements & Standards meetings
3 x Resources meetings
1 x Business meeting to close the year [flexible meeting – this does not always take place]
These meetings all take place on a Thursday from 18:30 to 20:30 and the dates for the meetings are agreed witin the Housekeeping meeting at the start of the year.
There are also five Finance committee meetings and a Pay committee meeting for just committee members rather than Full Governing Body members.

Meetings of the Full Governing Body are open meetings. Anyone wanting to attend will need to make their request to the Clerk of the Governing Body (via the school office) by completing the Open Meeting Protocol below (paper copies are available at the office). Requests must be made no less than 14 days before the meeting, and permission to observe is granted at the discretion of the Chair.
A maximum of two observers is permitted. For more information on requesting attendance please see our Open Meeting Protocol below.
