St Hugh's Governor Roles

In line with current recommendations, the Governing Body comprises four types of Governors:

  • Local Authority Governors
  • Parent Governors
  • Community Governors
  • School Based Governors (Head Teacher, Teaching staff representative, Non-Teaching staff representative)

From among these Governor types, the Governors select individuals to specified roles. In addition, Governors volunteer to be the Link Governor for a range of specialist areas within school.

  • Chair
  • Vice-Chair
  • Sub-Committee Chairs
  • Class Buddy Governors
  • Buddy Governors (mentor support for each other)

All Governors serve for a term of four years. Governors volunteer annually to serve on a specific Committee.

In deciding which Governors will sit on each committee the full governing body are mindful of needing a relatively equal number of governors on each committee and of relative skills and experiences of governors. Governors in specific roles serve in this capacity for a period of one year.

Governor roles are reviewed each year and re-assigned where necessary or appropriate. The Chair, Vice Chair and Committee Chair roles are elected roles.
