The Board of Governors at Pear Tree Infant School are made up from three categories:
Co-opted Governor - a governor who is appointed by existing governors on the basis of skills and/or experience.
Parent Governor - a governor who is appointed by parents of either Walbrook Nursery School or
Pear Tree Infant School or existing governors.
The definition of parent under education law covers:
All natural parents whether they are married or not
Any person who has parental responsibility for a child or young person; any person
who has care of a child/young person i.e. lives with and looks after the child.
The school will need to decide who comes within the definition of parent in respect of a particular pupil
but generally parents include all those with day to day responsibility for a child.
Staff Governor - a governor who is appointed by members of staff at Pear Tree Infant and Walbrook Nursery School
Currently we do not have any Associate Members on our Board of Governors. Associate Members are not governors,
they can be pupils, school staff and people who want to contribute specifically on issues related to their area of expertise
(for instance, finance) can be appointed as associate members
