The function of the nomination of school governors to maintained schools and academies is delegated to County Local Committees (CLCs). CLCs are the means by which the County Council involves local residents in decision making in their local area.
It is within the remit of the CLCs to identify and nominate suitable persons to serve as school governors on behalf of the County Council within the CLCs area.
A recent review of CLCs concluded that, as there is no statutory requirement for the nomination of school governors to be approved by members, this function should instead be delegated to the Director of Education and Skills, in liaison with the local Member.
The Cabinet Member for Education and Skills has approved the delegation of the nomination of school governors to the Director of Education and Skills, in liaison with the relevant local Member.
