Chesham's Governors

 

The Governing Body

 

Governors have a wide range of duties relating to the aims, policies and conduct of the school, improvement of standards, finance, staff appointments and links between the local community and school.

 

They meet once a term as a whole Governing Body and have further termly meetings through various sub-committees. The autumn term meeting of the governing body will be on Wednesday October 10th 2018. Each governor is linked to a particular area of responsibility linked to their specific skill set.

 

From September 1st 2015 we had a newly re-constituted governing body; details of which are set out below.

 

The Governing Body is made up of parents, staff members, co-opted representatives as well as an appointed member of the Local Authority. An important role of each Governor is to put forward the views of those they represent. Please contact any governor if you wish them to put your views forward or you have any other school issue you would like them to take up on your behalf.

 

Each governor has a term of office lasting for four years, after which they may seek re-election. However, posts are open for others to apply also.
