Local Authority Governor
Local authority governors are nominated by Central Bedfordshire Council but appointed by the governing body. The local authority can nominate any eligible person as a local authority governor, but it is for the governing body to decide whether their nominee has the skills to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.

Staff governors are elected by the school staff. Teaching and support staff who are employed by either the governing body, or the local authority, to work at the school under a contract of employment at the time of election are eligible to be staff governors.

Co-opted governors are appointed by the governing body. They are people who, in the opinion of the governing body, have skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.
