To contact a governor send a letter to Woldgate School or email [email protected]
Governors are often described as being critical friends of the School. They represent the local community on the governing body and represent the School within the local community.
Governors have a number of legal duties, which are outlined in the DfES document called “A Guide to the Law for School Governors”. These duties include having an overview of the financial, personnel and curriculum management of the college, and being responsible for considering pupil exclusions, staff dismissals and any complaints against the college. The Guide to the Law is available on the DfES website.
Governors are expected to attend meetings and undertake training. We are volunteers, though we can claim expenses for things like travel and baby-sitting.
For more information about what governors do, please talk to one of the people already on the governing body or read the minutes of recent governors’ meetings. These are available in School, please ask at Reception.
Most people over the age of 18 are eligible to be School governors.
Governors are appointed or elected to serve for a term of four years. At the end of this period they may seek re-election if they are still eligible. All governors must undergo a DBS check before taking office or when reappointed in order to safeguard the pupils at the School.
You cannot generally be a governor if you have received a prison sentence, been disqualified from working with children, been removed from office for financial misconduct or been fined for causing a disturbance on school premises.
To contact our Chair of Govenors, Mr P John, please send a letter to Woldgate School or email [email protected] for their attention.
