Become a Braidwood School Governor

Governors are people like you


You don't need special qualifications but you do need to read a fair amount of paper, attend meetings (at least one Full Governing Body meeting each half term, although there could be more as you may serve on one or more committees; eg: finance, staffing etc.) and work as part of a team.


Governors generally serve for a four year term.  The work is voluntary but offers the opportunity to make a real and direct contribution not only to the education system but also to the community.


If you want to considered for the role of school governor at Braidwood please contact Marion Walker, Clerk to the Governing Body, Tel: 0121 464 5558 or email m.walker@braidwood.bham.sch.uk.


There are various types of governors in school governing bodies, all of whom are volunteers. These include:


  • Parent governors – elected by other parents at the school.
  • Staff governors – elected by other members of staff at the school.
  • Local Authority (LA) governors – appointed by LA.
  • Co-opted governors – appointed by the governing body.
  • Foundation governors – are appointed by the school’s foundation (voluntary aided, voluntary controlled and foundation schools only).
