Governors' terms of office
Governors at The Dawnay are appointed for a term of four years.
Our Instrument of Government sets out the number and category of Governors. Since reconstitution in September 2014, The Dawnay School Governing Body consists of;
- 1 local authority governor - nominated by the local authority and voted on to the Governing Body.
- 2 parent governors - elected to the Governing Body by parents/carers by nomination and ballot (parent governors may be appointed by the Governing Body if there are no nominations).
- 2 staff governors - one member of staff is elected to the governing Body by school staff by nomination and ballot. The Head is a staff governor by right of position.
- 6 co-opted governors - voted on to the Governing Body by virtue of the skills they hold which are of benefit to the school.
Associate members are not governors but may be appointed by the Governing Body to sit on committees. They have the right to attend Governing Body meetings and receive agendas and other papers but do not have any voting rights at Full Governing Body meetings.
