The membership of the governing body of Cliffdale Primary Academy is determined by the Constitution.
There are four types of governors:
· Co-opted Governors
· Parent Governors
· Staff Governors
· The Executive Headteacher
· Associate Member
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.
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.
