The Rowley Lane Governing Body meet regularly.  They are made up of:

Parent Governors, selected by nomination and ballot

Local Authority Governors, selected by the Local Authority following application

Co-opted Governors, selected by the Governing Body.  It is important that there are always Governors who are independent of the school on our Governing Body as well as some that have connections to our school. 

Our Governing Body is made up of people who bring a range of skills.  We regularly audit these skills so that we can make appropriate appointments to the Governing Body when a seat becomes available.  Representation of our Governing Body currently has peole with skills in Accounting, HR, Engineering, Health,  Law, Further Education, Outdoor Maintenance, IT & Data Protection & Primary Education.

The Governors meet as a Full Governing Body usually once per term.

Groups of Governors make up sub-committees for:  Standards and Effectiveness and Resources.

These sub-committees also meet at least once per term.

Some committees meet less frequently, such as Head Teacher Performance Management; Staff Dismissals; Dismissal Appeals and Pupil Discipline Committees.
