The Role of a Governor

At Ysgol Penglais School we have Parent/Guardian Governors, Teacher Governors, Community Governors, LEA (Local Education Authority) Governors and a Staff Governor.

The role of each Governor is as follows:

Parent/Guardian Governor

They are elected by the parents/guardians or appointed by the Governing Body to represent the interests of parents/guardians on the Governing Body.

Teacher Governor

They are elected by fellow teaching staff at the school.

Staff Governor

They are elected from and by non-teaching staff employed to work at the school.

Local Education Authority (LEA) Governor

They are appointed by the Local Authority.  Local Authorities can appoint any eligible person as an LEA governor.

Community Governor

They are appointed by the Governing Body to represent the wider community interests of the school.  Community governors can be people who live or work in the community served by the school, or if they are not, are committed to the good governance and success of the school.

 

Vacancies for Governors

When we are required to appoint new Governors, we will always notify the appropriate persons and if we need to advertise, we will do so using the Ysgol Penglais School social media outlets. For new parent/guardian governors, we send an email via Parentmail to all parents/guardians and for teacher governors and staff governors, we advertise the positions internally to the appropriate staff.
