Andover Church of England Primary School is a voluntary controlled school operating within an Instrument of Government authorised by Hampshire County Council in conjunction with the foundation body of Winchester Diocesan Board of Education. The Governing Body of the school conforms to Standing Orders and each governor is required to comply with a Code of Conduct which includes declaring relevant business and pecuniary interests.
All governors (excepting the Head-teacher and the Vicar of the Parish) are appointed for a 4 year term of office which may be renewed. The two parent governors are elected by parents of children currently attending the school; the local authority governor is appointed by Hampshire County Council; the other foundation governor is appointed by the foundation body; the staff governor is elected by employed members of staff; and three co-opted governors that are appointed by the Governing Body to ensure a balance of skills, knowledge and experience is maintained.
All correspondence and contact with the governors should be made via Andover CE Primary school office, marked FAO the Chair of Governors.
