Local Governance Committee

Becoming a Parent Member of the Local Governance Committee

As vacancies arise, all parents and carers will be informed via text, email or letter.

If you are a parent or carer of a student registered at Royal Liberty School, then you are eligible to stand for election and we hope that you may be interested in putting yourself forward.

If you are interested, it may be helpful for you to know what is involved. The commitment to the role would involve you attending meetings and undertaking training. The Local Committee meets 6 times a term. All the meetings take place on a weekday evening. Training is freely available through the Local Authority and on occasions, whole governor training takes place on site.

Parents are elected for a four-year term.
