The governing body consists of the Headteacher, one Local Authority governor, one elected Staff governor, five elected Parent governors, four Co-opted governors, two Foundation governors.

The Foundation governors are appointed by the Aireborough Learning Partnership – A Co-operative Trust.

The job of the governing body is to check that the Headteacher is setting and meeting ambitious targets for both his staff and pupils and doing it within budget.

When a vacancy for a parent governor comes up, we contact all parents/carers so that people can put themselves forward. Then parents/carers vote on their preferred candidate. If you’re not a parent/carer but would like to be a governor, then please contact the Leeds Governors’ Support Service.

Letters for the attention of the Governors can be sent to Lisa Forward, Chair of the Governing Body, C/O Guiseley School, Fieldhead Road, Guiseley LS20 8DT.


Minutes of the latest Governor meeting are available from the school on request. Please email [email protected]
