A person is disqualified from being a governor of a particular school if they have failed to attend the meetings of the governing body of that school for a continuous period of six months, beginning with the date of the first meeting they failed to attend, without the consent of the governing body. (Regulation 17 and schedule 4 of the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012 (the “2012 Constitution Regulations”) and the School Governance (Federations) (England) Regulations 2012 (the “2012 Federation Regulations”) as amended by the School Governance (Constitution and Federations) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2014.
Local authority governors are nominated by the local authority but appointed by the governing body. The local authority can nominate any person who is eligible to be a local authority governor, but it is for the governing body to decide whether their nominee has the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school and meets any other eligibility criteria they have set. Local authorities should therefore make every effort to understand the governing body’s requirements and identify and nominate suitable candidates.
The governing body must not be smaller than seven members and must include:
the governing body may appoint as many additional co-opted governors as they consider necessary. However, the number of co-opted governors who are eligible to be elected or appointed as staff governors under Schedule 2 must not, when counted with
the one staff governor and the headteacher, exceed one-third of the total membership of the governing body.
There is no upper limit but governing bodies should have regard to this statutory guidance in deciding their size.
 There is no maximum number however, there should be at least 2 parent Governors.
