Governance at Crofton House

Board of Governors

The Board of Governors of Crofton House School is a group of dedicated individuals who volunteer their time and expertise to support the School in fulfilling its purpose and proposition. The Board is supported in its work by several Board committees, occasional task forces, and the CHS Foundation. 

Board of Governors Committees and Crofton House School Foundation 

The Board of Governors is supported by a number of Board committees and the CHS Foundation. Each of these is made up of a small group of volunteers. All Board committees are chaired by a member of the CHS Board of Governors. 

Volunteering in Governance

Each year, the chair of each committee works with the Chair of the Nomination and Governance Committee to rotate committee membership, creating opportunities for parents and guardians with relevant skills and experience to join a Board committee. Most often, Board members first serve on Board committees before being asked to join the Board of Governors. All Board and committee members sign the Crofton House School Board of Governors Code of Conduct.

On the Board of Governors, there is a minimum of 14 and a maximum of 18 Board members, 12 of whom are elected by the members of the Society (the parents of the School and Board members). Elected members may serve up to three consecutive three-year terms. 
To ensure continuity and institutional memory, at each Annual General Meeting, four elected members retire and four new members are elected. Up to four additional members may be appointed for a one-year term. The President of the Crofton House School Alumnae Association and the Chair of the Parents’ Auxiliary sit on the Board as ex-officio members during their respective terms of office. The Head of the School also sits on the Board of Governors as an ex-officio member.
