Instrument of Governance

All governing bodies of maintained schools are required to be constituted under the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012 or the School  Governance (Federations) (England) Regulations 2012.

Click here for the statutory guidance (2012) containing the ratios for membership of governing bodies [PDF].

Click here for the  May 2014 guide to the constitution of governing bodies [PDF]. This guidance is about the constitution of governing bodies and their size, membership  and skills. It also explains the arrangements for the constitution of governing bodies of maintained schools constituted under the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012.

If you wish to amend your constitution at any time, taking into account completed skills audit, send your revised draft instrument to the LA (Derby City or Derbyshire) for checking and they will issue an updated instrument of governance including some wording that is required by the Diocese. The LA then seek our approval so that both the LA and Diocese have approved the final version of the document.

For Derby City Schools email the Governor Support Manager and for Derbyshire County Schools email Governor Support Services.
