Parent governor representatives (with full voting rights)
- x 1 vacancy - primary school sector representative
- x 1 vacancy - secondary school sector representative.
Parent Governor Election
The council carries out an election to appoint two parent governors to sit on the sub-committee, one to represent the primary sector and one to represent the secondary sector. Those elected are appointed for a four year period.
Having parent governors on the sub-committee ensures that parents of children at schools have an apolitical voice on local education matters and can hold the council to account for education policy and decision-making. It is an important distinction to note that although elected by parent governors, the role is to represent parents and not governors. If you are a parent governor and would be interested in being co-opted onto the sub-committee please contact the committee manager.
2 Church representatives (with full voting rights)
- Andrew Smith - Diocese of York
- 1 x vacancy - Diocese of Middlesbrough.
2 Teachers' Union representatives (no voting rights)
- John Killeen
- Howard Nind.
