Governing Body Structure

The Governing Body of Templemoor Infant and Nursery School was re-constituted on 10th March 2014. There are 10 governors as follows:
 
3 Parent Governors
1 Local Authority Governor
1 Staff Governor
4 Co-opted Governors
1 Head Teacher Governor
 
The Governing Body believes that the current structure is appropriate for its current activities but continually keeps it under review. The Governing Body may also co-opt individuals with specific skills and knowledge to assist in the work of the sub-committees.
The Instrument of Government is the document that records the name of the school and the constitution of its governing body and can be downloaded below. 
Information about each type of governor
 
Parent Governors are voted onto the governing body by other parents of children who attend the school. Parent governors play an important role in shaping the education and experience of their children at Templemoor.
 
Local Authority (LA) Governors are appointed by the LA which maintains the school. They do not work for the LA but are people who live or work locally and are interested in supporting a local school. LA governors bring different perspectives to the governing body.
 
Staff Governors represent the views of staff at Templemoor at governing body meetings.
 
Co-opted Governors are appointed by the governing body. They bring a wide range of skills and expertise to the Governing Body.
 
A Head Teacher Governor is automatically a member of the Governing Body by virtue of office.
