Clean Team Members now being recruited

Co-opted Governors

The governing body is currently advertising for three co-opted governors to join us. Co-opted governors are a recent development for all governing bodies and are different from the parent governor role because they can be recruited from parents or the wider community. This means there will be no election process involved in this recruitment campaign.
