Governors

The membership of the governing body of Mary Rose Academy is determined by the Constitution.

There are four types of governors:

  • 5 Co-opted Governors
  • 4 Parent Governors
  • 3 Staff Governors
  • 5 Associate Members

Co-opted and Parent Governors are all volunteers who are not paid and do not receive any expenses in connection with being a governor.  The staff governors are all paid members of staff but do not receive any additional payments in connection with being a governor. 

The associate members are all members of staff (the Head of School, three Assistant Heads and the Business Operations Director) who are appointed because of the jobs they do.  They attend meetings to help the Governors with information but they cannot vote on any matter at any meeting.  They do not receive any additional payments in connection with their work for the governors. 

There is also a Clerk to the Governors who arranges and attends meetings and helps with legal and constitutional matters, but cannot vote on any matter at any meeting. This is a paid post.

Statutory information about the governors can be found in this PDF.

Each governor, in addition to attending meetings and making general visits to Mary Rose Academy, is allocated an overview of specific aspects of the work of the Academy, as shown in this table:
