Return to Governors

Who We Are

Every school has a governing body made up of a team of volunteers both from within the school community and the outside community. They each bring a variety of skills, qualifications and experiences to collectively make objective, fair and well thought out decisions.

At Yorke Mead, the governing body currently comprises 14 members.

  • 5 Parent Governors elected by parents and carers of children at the school
  • 1 Staff Governor elected by members of staff at the school.
  • 1 Local Authority Governor appointed by the Local Authority
  • 7 co-opted Governors. One current vacancy.

The Headteacher is automatically included.
