Nominations for Local Authority Governors to Maintained Schools and Academy Governing Bodies (SC05(19/20))

Decision Maker: South Chichester County Local Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The function of the nomination of school governors to maintained schools and academies is delegated to County Local Committees (CLCs) as it enables county councillors to maintain a valuable link with the schools and helps promote to the wider public the important role of school governors.


Under the Education Act 2011 local authority governors are nominated by the local authority but appointed by the governing body. The CLC can nominate any eligible person as a local authority governor, but it is for the governing body to decide whether their nominee has the skills to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school and meets any other eligibility criteria they have set.


At its meeting on 05 November 2019 the South Chichester County Local Committee approved the following nominations under the 2012 Regulations:


Nomination for reappointment:


• Mr Nigel Bloodworth to Southbourne Junior School for a four-year term.



Nominations for appointment:


Rev’d Graham Steel to West Wittering Primary School for a four-year term

• Mr Richard Murfitt to Singleton C.E Primary School for a four-year term


The call-in deadline for this decision is 13 November 2019.
