Brough School Governing Body is made up of nine governors. The school has a document called an Instrument of Governance which defines the governing body and requires the school to have the following constitution:
• Two parent governors (elected by parents)
• One local authority governor (appointed by the local authority)
• One staff governor (elected by the school staff)
• One Head teacher (automatically a governor)
• Four co-opted governors (appointed by the governing body)
The normal period of office for the governors is 4 years unless otherwise stated.
As well as the full governing body committee, there are two subcommittees: the Resources subcommittee (responsible for finance, staffing and premises) and the Pupil Progress subcommittee (responsible for all aspects of pupil progress and curriculum). Each committee has their specific Terms of Reference and responsibilities.
Meetings are normally held each term.
