Welcome to the Governors’ section of our website!
The constitution of the Governing Body at Bournehall states that we should have
twelve governors - parents, staff, co-opted, local authority and the head teacher.
The chair and vice chair are elected annually.
You may have already read a little bit about us, but you could still be wondering,
‘What do the governors do?’ or maybe, ‘Why do we need governors at all?’
The key elements of our role are:
When required, we serve on panels to appoint staff, appraise the head teacher,
agree financial expenditure, address grievances, oversee disciplinary matters and
Quite a wide range of demands! Governor training is delivered by the local authority.
Governors are also interviewed during an Ofsted inspection, as their role is vital to
the successful overall management of the school.
I can always be contacted via the school office, so if you have any questions, I’d be happy to answer them.
Diana Brown, Chair of Governors
