Welcome to our Governors’ section.
Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.
The Department for Education states that:
'The governing body has general responsibility for the conduct of the school with view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. This general responsibility gives rise to a wide range of specific responsibilities which in turn require the governing body to establish a range of procedures.'
Fox Hill School has a constitution of 14 governors, of which a minimum of 2 must be represented by the parent body and the term of office for each governor is usually held for 4 years.
Staff Governors and Parent Governors are elected by a ballot of the communities they represent; LA (Local Authority) and Co-opted Governors are appointed by the Governing Board. Governors and the Clerk to the Governors may be contacted via the school address and phone number.
Copies of the minutes of the Governors Meetings can be viewed in the school reception if required.
For information about the process of electing Parent Governors, please see the PDF below.
