Governors

At Upton Snodsbury C of E First  School, our governors play a vital role in leading the strategic direction of the school and are committed to providing the highest standards of education for each pupil.

The different categories of governors on our governing body are:

  • Parent Governor who have a child in school at the time of their election, and are elected by the parents with children at the school;
  • Staff Governor who are members of staff at the school and are elected by their colleagues;
  • Foundation Governor are appointed on to the governing body by the Board of Education of the Diocese of Worcester 
  • A Local Authority (LA) Governor who is nominated by the local Councilor and appointed by the governing body;
  • The Headteacher (HT) is also a member of the governing body by right of the position they hold in the school;
  • Co-opted Governor can be appointed to serve on committees and attend meetings of the full governing body. Although they are not governors and they do not have the right to vote at meetings of the full governing body, they have voting rights on the committees of which they are a member.
