About Our Governors
Cam Hopton is a Voluntary Aided Church of England School. In a Voluntary Aided School the majority of the Governors are appointed by the Diocese of Gloucester, ensuring that the school retains a distinctly Christian ethos. These are known as Foundation Governors, and in our case they are nominated by the PCC at St. George’s Church. In return the Governors and the Diocese of Gloucester contribute towards the costs of maintaining the school buildings. There are eight foundation governors at Cam Hopton.
There are also two parent governors, elected by parents of children at the school. Their term of office is four years.
A staff governor is appointed by election from other members of staff.
There is one local authority governor, who is an independent representative of the community.
There is one co-opted governor. A Co-Opted governor is a person appointed by the governing body and who, in the opinion of the governing body, has the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.
There are fourteen governors in all, including the Headteacher.
