The different categories of governors are:
- Foundation Governors are appointed by the school's founding body which, for our school, is St. Aldhelm’s Church.
- LA (Local Authority) Governors are nominated by the local councillors.
- Parent Governors have a child in school at the time of their election and are elected by the parents with children at the school.
- Staff Governors are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues. This category includes the Head Teacher (who serves in an ex officio capacity), teaching and non-teaching staff. Unlike parent governors, when a member of staff leaves the school he/she must also leave the governing body.
- Associate Governors are appointed by the governing body to join the group.

Copies of the minutes of all committee and full Governing Body meetings are held in school and are available to parents.

If you require any further information with regard to the work of the Governing Body please contact the Clerk, Chair of Governors or Head Teacher through the School Office.
