Role of the Governors

 

Being a school governor is a very rewarding job. It gives you the opportunity to have a say in the development of the school. As a governor you will also be involved and aware of the latest developments in the way that children are being educated.

There is a team of Governors at Christ Church, including representation from teacher governors, parent governors and local education authority (LA) governors. The term of office is 4 years, and an apply-election process is adopted to ensure all candidates are given a fair chance.

All foundation governors are appointed by the parish church council, LA governors by the local authority and parent governors by the parents.
