Information on the Reconstitution of Controlled and Maintained school Boards of Governors 2024

Controlled and Maintained school Boards of Governors (BoGs) are usually reconstituted every four years when members complete their term of office, and they may be reappointed or replaced. The aim of the reconstitution is to achieve a good balance of individuals on the BoGs, based on the skills and knowledge and experience that they bring to the role. A typical Board of Governors should be representative of people from the local community.

The process for the reconstitution of BoGs for the next four-year term of office (2024-2028) has been initiated by DE. Schools will be contacted, as appropriate in the coming weeks by DE, EA and CCMS about the governor reconstitution process.

The Department would like to take this opportunity to express its sincere thanks to all school governors for their hard work, commitment and dedication. Their contribution to the management of the school and ensuring effective learning outcomes for pupils is greatly appreciated.
