Staff governors consist of the headteacher; non-teaching staff and teaching staff – the position of
the headteacher being ‘ring-fenced’ (ie should the headteacher choose not to be a governor, no-one else can fill the vacancy).The headteacher is a member of the governing body by virtue of their office.

The headteacher may at any time resign as a governor, and withdraw their resignation, in both cases by notifying the clerk in writing.
