Governance Vacancies

Some members are elected by parents and staff, others are nominated by the local governing committee for approval by the trust board or co-opted directly by the local governing committee. The role is voluntary although individuals are entitled to claim expenses in line with the trust’s Director and Local Governor Expenses Policy.

Videos of some of our trustees and local governing committee members talking about their experience of governing within NEAT are on our Youtube channel.

Our leaflet ‘Becoming a local governor’ below will tell you more about what is involved.

If you’d like to find out more about becoming a local governing committee member in the NEAT family of schools then please contact the NEAT Governance Support Team.
