Governors

 

Swavesery Primary School Governing Body 2017 - 2018

(updated Sept 2017)

The Governing Body comprises:-

• one L.A. Governor - nominated by the Local Authority

• three Parent Governors - elected by the parent body, including one from Pre-School parents

• eight Co-opted Governors – members of the local community, nominated from Community organisations or by other governors, including one to represent Pre-School

• one Staff Governor - elected by the staff

• Headteacher (who can choose to be a governor or not)

 

The Governors generally hold office for a period of four years, however Co-opted Governors under the current constitution hold office for three years.

They meet as a full governing body twice a term. There are two main committees: Resources (which covers Finance, Personnel, Premises) and Curriculum, Learning and Achievement (CLA).

These committees have delegated responsibilities, giving advice to the full governing body, and are required to report back on all of their actions.

 

All governors are accessible should you wish to consult them and can be contacted via the School Office.
