Our Governors

Membership, Tenure & Attendance

School Governors are members of a school’s Governing Board; they have responsibility for raising school standards through their three key roles of setting strategic direction, ensuring accountability and acting as a critical friend.

Here at Sparrow Farm Primary School the Governing Board consists of governors from differing areas,

  • Parents – elected by other parents.
  • Staff – elected by other members of staff.
  • Co-opted – appointed by the governing body.

Whether appointed or elected each governor has a term of office, which is a maximum of four years before they have to seek re-election/re-appointment.

All Governors are appointed or elected in accordance with the Instrument of Government and under the guidance of the Local Authority representative. All appointments are recorded in the Full
Governing Board Minutes.

Being a Governor is voluntary and as such, Governors do not receive any payment for their work. Training is given for every aspect of the role and is delivered locally by the local authority, through specialist on-line training packages and through national organisations.

The Governing Board meet termly.  Governors reviewed their Committee structure in January 2023 and moved to a flat structure with only a Pay Committee.  The Governing Board agree Terms of Reference for the full Governing Board and Pay Committee each year.
