Governor voting rights

The following people are entitled to attend committee meetings:

  • Any member of the committee (unless they have been suspended)
  • The Headteacher, whether or not they are a member of the committee
  • The Clerk to the committee
  • Any other person that the governing board or committee determines


Only members of the committee may vote in committee meetings. All governors have equal voting rights, but the chair has a casting vote if there is a tie. Associate members have voting rights on committees but not at full governing board meetings.
