Governors are appointed to help:
· decide what is taught
· set standards of behaviour
· interview and select staff
· decide how the school budget is spent
Governors are recruited from:
· school staff
· local council representatives
· community representatives
· people with special skills
Parent governors are elected by parents and are your representatives on the governing body. Many of our governors are also parents of children at the school but are appointed in a different capacity. If you wish to speak to a parent governor please leave your number at the school office and you will be contacted.
If anything is bothering you at all please make an appointment to see the Head Teacher. Things can usually be settled amicably in this way.
If not, you have the right to appeal to the Governing Body.
