Meols Cop High School Governing Board

The governing board of Meols Cop High School plays an important role in the life of the school.  Governors make decisions about many aspects of the school including staffing, finance and curriculum.  The governing board consists of members of staff, parents, co-opted governors from the local community and a LA governor. The governing board and headteacher work in close partnership.

The Governing Board meets once a term but there are committees which have delegated responsibility for various areas of governance. These include:

  • Finance Committee - Meets monthly
  • Environment Committee - Meets monthly
  • Curriculum Committee - Meets at least termly
  • Safeguarding Committee – Meets at least termly
  • Staff Discipline / Dismissal Committee - Meets when necessary
  • Staff Discipline / Dismissal Appeals Committee – Meets when necessary
  • Staffing and Pay Review Committee (including headteacher) - Meets when necessary, but at least termly
  • Staffing and Pay Review Appeals Committee – Meets when necessary
  • Student Disciplinary Committee – Meets when necessary
  • Student Attendance Committee – Meets every half term
  • Complaints Committee – Meets when necessary

If you have any queries concerning the school or your child please contact either of the above, in writing, via the school.
