Cabinet Decision: 13th June 2013
Title of Item/Report
Nomination / Appointment of LA Governors to Maintained Schools & Academies
Record of the Decision
Consideration was given to a report that proposed a procedure for nominating Local Authority Governors to serve on school governing bodies that had reconstituted under The School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012. This procedure needed to be agreed by Members as the accepted protocol for the process.

The report also recommended an addition to the current Local Authority Governor appointment procedure, to formalise the inclusion of the appointment of Local Authority Governors to Academies, as and when required.

RESOLVED that:-

1. The new procedure for nominating Local Authority Governors to reconstituted governing bodies be adopted.

2. The appointment of Local Authority Governors to Academies be included in the current appointment procedure.

3. Consultation be undertaken with Governing Bodies to develop outline guidance on the criteria that they may wish to use when requesting nominations for LA Governor representatives.
Reasons for the Decision
The School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012 came into force in September 2012. The regulations are permissive, and in relation to Local Authority Governors will be applicable to schools who reconstitute after 1 September 2012.

The recommendations will provide a clear procedure for the nomination of Local Authority Governors to reconstituted governing bodies and similarly confirm the appointment procedure for Local Authority Governors to Academies.
