Wherever possible, places for parent, teacher and staff governors must be filled by election. The organisation of the elections will be the responsibility of the local authority who will decide:

  • when and where the election will be held
  • how nominations should be made
  • what voting method will be used; and
  • whether there should be a returning or presiding officer (an official in charge of the voting process)

The local authority may also set qualifying dates for candidates to stand for election. No requirement can be imposed as to the minimum number of votes that need to be cast for parent, teacher or staff governor elections.
