The governors represent people who have an important stake in the school. These include parents, teachers, non-teaching staff, the local education authority and the local community. There are elections to choose parent governors and teacher representatives. Some governors are nominated by Lancashire County Council. The governors in turn elect a chair and vice-chair annually. In Coppull, we choose to purchase clerking services from the County Council’s Governor Services.
The governors make the important decisions about the future direction of the school and children’s centre. We agree the policies for the school.
We hold meetings of all governors at least once each term, but much of the more detailed work is undertaken by sub-committees. We co-opt some other people to help on these committees, for example, parents who use our children’s centre.
