Governing Body of Conisborough College
(East) (Whitefoot Ward)
The Governors of the school are people drawn from the local community and elected parents and staff.
The Headteacher directs the running of the school. The Governors have general oversight over the running of the school. Governors receive termly reports from the Headteacher on the school and its activities as well as information from the authority on policy matters, the school resources and changes to premises. The Governors also interview candidates and recommend appointments for many jobs in the school and act as an appeal body in cases when school decisions are challenged, such as when pupils have to be excluded. Governors are invited to take a full part in the school both through visits to the school at work and attendance at events.
