The Role of The Local Governing Body at Coldfair Green Primary

Parent Governors are voted in by parents who are able to propose and second a nomination for parent governor when a vacancy is advertised. The Headteacher is automatically a member of the governing body from the date of their appointment unless they choose to resign this right. The Staff governor is nominated and voted on to the governing body by the staff body.
