The normal term of office for a Governor is four years.
The Governors can be contacted at any time by writing to the Chair of Governors or clerk via the school. The fundamental role of the School Governors is to act as a link between the school and the community they serve, and also between the school and the Education Authority. However, under the new legislation, School Governors are given more direct and far-reaching responsibilities.
The principal role of the governors is to support, challenge and monitor the School Improvement Plan of the school. The governors work as a unicameral board, meaning that there are no committees. Each governor has a “portfolio” for which they are responsible.
The governors hold at least one meeting per month.
