COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP RPA 2022-23
Appointed governors may be parents or grandparents of children at the school. They may be appointed for their skills rather than being elected by the parent body. However, no more than one-third of governors may be parents/grandparents, so 2 or 3 RPA-appointed governors must include a Parish incumbent and 2 DBE-approved governors – called Foundation governors.
