Background and goals
Canford are the sole sponsors of The Bourne Academy, so provide the majority of governors. In all other cases, staff are volunteer governors (parent governors or co-opted for their educational experience).
About a dozen teaching staff are governors.
Frequency and duration
Schools vary as to how often governors meet, but all meet at least three times a year as a governing body; and most are involved elsewhere on sub-committees or as visitors to the school.
