Types of Governors


We have twelve members of our Governing Body and there are four types of governors:

  • Parent Governors; parents or carers of children in the school

  • Local Authority Governor; representatives of the LA, usually but not always councillors

  • Co-opted Governors; interested members of the community which can be individuals or people from local businesses and interest groups; they are chosen based on the needs of the school.

  • Staff Governor; elected from the staff by the staff.

    The Head Teacher is also a Governor of the school.
