Governors

The Governing Body has representation from the community, staff and parents as well as directors of Consilium Academies (MAT).  Any staff or parent vacancies which arise are advertised through the website and via an email to staff for staff governor vacancies or a mail shot to parents for parent governors.  Once self nominations have been received a ballot paper is drawn up, should there be multiple nominations, which is then circulated and voted upon.  The staff are balloted for any staff governor vacancies and parents are balloted for any parent governor vacancies.  The results from these ballots are then publicised and the successful candidate informed.

Within the full governing body the role of chair is voted on, through a similar nomination and ballot system, by the members of the full governing body.

Membership to the committees is decided upon by the full governing body based upon the skills audit to ensure that the most suitable person(s) are appointed to each committee.

A full list of all meetings for the current academic year can be found at the link below.

There is currently a vacancy for a Parent Governor, anyone who wishes to receive further information about this vacancy or the role of a school governor please contact Gill Docherty, Clerk to the Governors, by telephone to the main school number or by email to GillDocherty@gateshead.gov.uk
