Carterton Community Schools Federation has a single Governing Board for all three schools. By drawing on skills and expertise from the parents, staff and local community in a range of positions, we aim to provide guidance and support for all students within the Federation. While some may have a particular connection to one school, all governors make decisions in the interest of the whole of the Federation.

If you would like to become a governor on our Governing Board, please contact one of our schools or alternatively email the Chair for further details.

To contact the Governors please contact the Clerk to the Governing Board, c/o Carterton Community College, Upavon Way, Carterton OX18 1BU or via email: clerk@carterton.oxon.sch.uk

The role of the Governing BoardKey GovernorsAll GovernorsCommitteesMinutes

Governors provide oversight of all the schools within the Carterton Community Schools Federation. They have a legal responsibility to ensure that key elements are covered by the schools (e.g. Safeguarding, Health and Safety) but also provide the strategic vision for the Federation. While they are dedicated to the achievement of all students currently within the Federation, they also look ahead and help shape the future for the Schools. Governors have a range of responsibilities:

  • Attend Full Governing Board (and any Committee) meetings to discuss concepts and make decisions on issues facing the Federation
  • Visit the Schools within the Federation and be familiar with the staff, students and challenges facing each one
  • Hold Senior Leaders to account in their management of the Schools
  • Ensure the proper structures, policies and guidance are in place to further the aims of the Federation

For more details on the role of School Governor please visit the National Governors’s Association

Parent Governors (2)

Parents or caregivers of students currently at one of the Schools within the Federation, Parent Governors are elected by parents from across the whole Federation. Although they may have children at a particular school within the Federation they vote in the interests of the whole Federation. They bring with them not just the perspective of having child engaged in education but experience and skills from previous careers, governance involvement or elsewhere.

Staff Governor (1)

Those employed within the Federation, whether in a teaching or non-teaching capacity, may stand for election as Staff Governor. Those nominated must be elected by all staff from the Federation and, like Parent Governors, do not represent one School. Staff Governors are not intended to be the voice of members of staff, akin to union representatives, but rather bring the perspective of being employed within the Federation.

Vacant Position x 1
Co-opted Governors (12)

Individuals connected to the local community may stand as Co-Opted Governors. On considering their skills, the Governing Body considers whether it would be improved from having individual governors join them. Those who would be eligible for positions as Staff or Parent Governor roles may stand as Co-Opted Governors but test remains whether they would be asset to the Governing Body.
