The Governors

The School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012

The Governing Body shall consist of:

  • Two Parent Governors
  • One Local Authority Governor
  • One Staff Governor
  • One Headteacher
  • Seven Co-opted Governors

The Instrument of Government came into effect on 1st September 2015

Governors should not be approached on the school yard or by individual parents. Any matters to be raised come under the ‘management of the school’ and queries must go to school staff. All Governors can be contacted via Mrs K Quinn, Clerk to the Governors. If you would like to contact a Governor please telephone the school office 0191 2524188 or by email at

Parent Governors

Parent Governors are elected by and from amongst the parents.

Local Authority Governors

Local Authority Governors are appointed by the local authority.

Staff Governors

The Headteacher is automatically a governor and so has a vote. The Headteacher may choose not to be a governor but will still retain the right to attend all governor meetings. Other staff governors are elected by, and from amongst, the school’s teaching and non-teaching staff.

Co-opted Governors

Co-opted governors are appointed by members of the governing body. They can bring expertise found in the local community (including the business sector).
