Governors are appointed by the Tenax Board of Trustees, with the exception of the parent governors who are elected by parents, and the staff governor elected by staff.
Our Clerk to the Governors is Maria Campbell.
Our governing body meets once every long term, three times a year, as well as additional meetings for training and development opportunities.
The roles and responsibilities of the Local Governing Body are:
Standards and Safeguarding
Ethos, Character and Local Traditions
Working with Parents and the Local Community
Further details of the LGB's roles and responsibilities are contained in the Terms of Reference document below.
Individual governors also take on specific responsibilities as “link governors” for areas of the curriculum and all aspects of the school’s life. These are detailed in Governor Information document below.
The Chair of Governors, Miss Cherie Sargent, can be contacted in writing via the Clerk to the Governing Body, Mrs Maria Campbell, either by post using the school postal address, or by email Campbell@bishopchavasseschool.org.uk.
We are fortunate to have such a dedicated board of governors who are very active within the school; regularly coming into Bishop Chavasse and sharing in the learning taking place.
Further details are provided on the governance arrangements for the Tenax Schools Trust on its website.
