Clerk to the Governors
The school Governors are volunteers who help to run the school. Most schools work with a group of Governors, together they are called the Governing Body.
School Governors are drawn from different parts of the community and can be parents and staff or from the LA, the community and other groups. This helps ensure the governing body has sufficient diversity of views and experience, but does not mean governors of a particular category represent that group on the governing body. For example, parent governors do not represent the parents at the school and do not report back to them.
The governing body has a range of duties and powers (as outlined in the TDAT Scheme of Delegation) and a general responsibility for the conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. Its responsibilities include but are not limited to:
If you think you have what it takes to be a school Governor you can contact Mrs Stoneman, Clerk to the governors through our school office to see if there are any vacancies or look out for application forms that will be sent home when there is an election for Parent Governor.
