The Governing Body

Chair of Governors: Mrs Judith Houghton

Contact: governors@romsey.hants.sch.uk or via the school office on 01794 512334

The governing body is made up of various types of governor as follows:

LEA Representative – Governors in this role are appointed by the local authority.
 
Parent Representative – These governors are made up of parents of pupils in the school.
 
Community Governors – Members of the local community who have an interest in the school
 
Staff Representatives – Comprised of the Headteachers plus a teacher and member of support staff.
 
Currently no vacancies

In terms of the time commitment required the governing body as a whole meets once a term – 3 of these are in the evening and the fourth is during the afternoon, giving governors the opportunity to observe lessons or activities in school during the school day. Governors are also expected to join one or more of the sub-committees that help support the school in its work. These also meet once a term, with occasional extra meetings as the subject matter determines. The times of these meetings may vary. Many employers support their employees becoming a school governor.
