Aragon Governing Body



The Governing Body of Aragon Primary School consists of nine elected governors, four co-opted from the local community, three staff governors one of which is the Head Teacher and two parent governors. All are appointed following nomination and election according to statutory guidance and have been elected because of their specific knowledge and skills.

Terms of office are for four years with the Chair and vice Chair requiring annual election.

The Governing Body also has Associate/Advisory members however they have no voting rights but act in an advisory capacity and bring their specific knowledge and expertise to the termly Governing Body meetings.

All governance decisions are always made in the best interest of the school, the pupils, the staff and parents/carers and all governors adhere to a strict Code of Conduct which they sign annually. Governors also complete and sign a Register of Interests form which requires them to declare any relevant business/pecuniary interests.  Copies of both are available at the school and are also published on the school website.
