Governors’ information and duties

Governors are people with varied backgrounds and interests. Governors play a vital part in helping all children in the school. It is an important and worthwhile job within the local community.

The Governing Body of Bury CE High School is comprised of Governors who all have an interest in the school and who want to help the school by working together. Eight of these Governors are Foundation Governors, of which one is appointed by the Diocesan Board of Education, four who are appointed by local Deaneries, three who are appointed by Bury Parish Church Parochial Church Council and the Rector of Bury, who serves as an ex-officio Governor. Five non-foundation Governors are appointed, four of which are parent Governors and a one staff Governor, all appointed via ballot. The Headteacher is appointed as the Headteacher Governor and remains on the Governing Body during his or her appointment. This is known as an ex-officio appointment.

However Governors are appointed, they all bring to the Governing Body a much-appreciated range of knowledge and experience.

Currently there is one main meeting each term, held in the evening, and Governors are also expected to serve on at least one of the sub-committees: Resources, Ethos and Behaviour or Curriculum and Standards which also meet once per term.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact the Clerk to Governors, Mrs. Michelle Johnson on clerk@burychurch.bury.sch.uk.
