Queens' Federation Governing Body

In order to meet the skill requirements necessary to fulfil our core functions, we can have a total of 21 Governors on our Governing Body, broken down as follows:

  • 2 elected Parent Governors (one parent governor elected or appointed by the parents by each school in the Federation in accordance with Regulation 14 of the Federation Regulations).
  • 1 Local Authority Governor.
  • 1 Headteacher (Executive Headteacher of the Federation).
  • 1 elected Staff Governor (elected by staff of the Federation).
  • 13 Co-opted Governors (of which up to 5 could be members of staff).  The total number of co-opted Governors who are also eligible to be elected as staff governors, so when counted with the elected Staff Governor and Headteacher, must not exceed one third of the total membership of the Governing Body.
  • 3 Partnership Governors (appointed by the Governing Body on the nomination of parents of registered pupils).

The Term of office for all Governors (other than the Headteacher) is four years.  Please click here to return to our main-page which details the make-up of our Governing Body.
