When do the Governing Board meet?

New Cangle Full Governing Board meets 6 times a year. As a small governing board, the school does not have sub committees which meet regularly.

Who are School Governors?

Legally-appointed volunteer advisors, helping schools be the best they can be. Governors work alongside staff as a joint team, rather like directors of a business and trustees of a charity.

What sort of people are governors?

  • Parents or carers of pupils
  • A teacher or a member of the non-teaching staff
  • People interested in our school who live or work in the local community
  • People already known to the Education Authority, such as councillors or experienced governors
  • People connected with other local schools, especially linked or partnership schools

All governors must be able to pass a Disclosure and Barring Service check

What sort of things do Governors do?

  • Decide what really matters to our school and what is the right thing to do (values and ethos)
  • Decide where we are going and how we will get there (current and future developments)
  • Encourage the staff and pupils to do their best
  • Ask questions and look at things (check things are being done as wanted)
  • Check the finances are correctly managed
  • Check the law regarding education is being followed

How do you contact a school governor?

Please contact governors@newcangle.co.ukIf you would like to contact an individual governor, the school office can also put you in contact. 

Are you interested in being a governor?

This might sound like a big job – especially as it is not paid -  but it is really just common sense, and very interesting. Training is also provided.  Please contact Georgina Ager, Chair of Governors,  through the School Office for a chat or email: governors@newcangle.co.uk
