Our Governing Body

Structure and Remit of the Governing Body

The Governing Body consists of up to 11 Governors.

Of these:

  • 2 are elected by parents
  • 2 are elected by the staff
  • 1 is the Headteacher
  • 6 are co-opted governors appointed by the Cygnus Trust/ Governing Body

The Governing Body may also appoint Associate Members, who are not Governors and do not have voting rights, but who attend Local Governing Committee meetings. Except for the Headteacher, all Governors are appointed or elected for a term of 4 years. The Chair and Vice-Chair are elected every two years by the Governors.

The Governing Body usually meets 4 times a year.

The role and responsibilities of Local Governing Committees are set out in the Cygnus Trust's Scheme of Delegation.
