Governors are like a Board of Directors and make decisions about how the school should be organised. They meet at least once a term. Minutes of the previous meeting are always available on the parents notice board. Together they represent the local community. Governors are appointed or elected to help decide what is taught, set standards of behaviour, interview and select staff and decide how the school budget is spent. Parent representatives are elected through a parental ballot when a vacancy becomes available.  All parents who have pupils in school at that time are eligible to vote and/or stand as a candidate. Such ballots are organised by school.

School governors are parents, staff and representatives of the Local Authority and community.  Parent representatives are appointed by parents, staff reps are appointed by school staff, Local Authority reps are appointed by the Local council and co-opted reps are appointed by the governing body. They all serve for 4 years. Associate members are optional and are also appointed by the governing body.
