Chairs of governors from Network cb23 meet regularly to discuss current issues and share practice. There is also an opportunity for newly appointed governors to meet in the summer term to network informally and discuss their induction and roles with governors from other schools.

Roles of school governors

The governing body has considerable discretion as to how to discharge its responsibilities but is required to constitute itself in line with the regulations and to appoint a chair and vice chair. The governing body may delegate certain of its responsibilities to certain governors or committees of governors, although in general, it is not compelled to do so.
