Governing Body

In accordance with Government Regulations, Brooke’s Full Governing Body has thirteen governor roles. Governing Bodies are required to meet at least three times a year. 

Our Governing Body is made-up of different types of Governors:

  • The Headteacher
  • Parent governors – three parents (elected by the parents)
  • Staff governors – one (elected by the school staff)
  • LA (Local Authority) governors – one, chosen to represent the wider community (elected by the local authority)
  • Co-opted governors – five, chosen for their specific skill, knowledge or specialism (appointed by the governing body as required via recruitment)
  • Foundation governors – two, as a Church of England school, the Diocese and the Parochial Church Council nominate and approve

We currently hold monthly Full Governing Body (FGB) meetings each term.  All governors are expected to attend and the attendance record is updated and published on the school website in the documents below.  Our Parent Governor, Anna Fairhurst, is currently the chair for these meetings.
