Roles and Terms of Office

Vale School Governing Body Membership

In the interest of transparency, our governing body is required to publish up-to-date details of its governance arrangements.

The governing body meets at least 8 times per academic year and all governors are expected to attend these meetings. In addition governors are assigned to be leads in key areas of school business and/or as link governor to a year group/cohort of pupils.

This information will be updated at the start of each academic term. Should you have any queries please contact the clerk to the governors via the school office.
