Garrett Hall Primary School

Governors

At Garrett Hall we are very lucky to have a dedicated team of governors. Our governors play a vital role in ensuring that our school provides the very best possible education for all of our children. Our governors are responsible for providing a strategic view, ensuring accountability and act as a crucial friend to the school. Our governors hold regular meetings, of at least one per term.

 

How are our governors selected? 

Parent governors are elected by the parents/carers and the term of office is four years. When a position becomes vacant nominations will be asked for and an election involving all registered parents and guardians will take place. 

Community governors are appointed by the Governing Body and their term of office is four years.

LEA governors are appointed by the Local Education Authority and their term of office is four years

Staff governors are elected by the staff for four years from the date of appointment.
