Governor Matrix 2016/2017

Here at Rakegate we are very fortunate to have a keen and supportive group of Governors that support and challenge the school.


We currently have 11 Governors and 1 Associate Governor. 


Parent Governors are voted onto the body by the parents/carers of the school and serve for a period of four years.


Governors are rather like a board of directors. They make decisions about how the school is run. They meet at least once a term as a full governing body but also form committees that meet more regularly.


Governors are appointed to help:

  • decide what is taught,
  • set standards of behaviour
  • interview and select staff,
  • help to decide how the budget is spent.


School Governors are:

  • parents
  • staff from the school
  • local council and community representatives


Should you wish to communicate with a governor please contact the school office initially and your requst or message will be passed on to them.
