Who is part of the Governing Body?

The Governing Body at Rye Oak is made up of five types of Governors:

  • The Headteacher of Rye Oak
  • Local Authority Governors (nominated by Southwark and appointed by the governing body)
  • Staff Governors (elected by the staff at Rye Oak)
  • Parent Governors (elected by the parents and carers of children at Rye Oak)
  • Co-opted Governors (appointed by the governing body to support with the governing of Rye Oak).

Each governor is a member of a different committee which focuses on a different element of Rye Oak. The commitees and membership are as follows:
