Elections

There are regular elections for members of the Governing Body of Birchwood High School. If you are interested in putting yourself up for election please contact Mrs Adeniji.

Meetings

Under Regulation 13 of the School Governance (Procedures) ( England ) Regulations 2003 , governing bodies must make their main meeting minutes available for inspection by any interested person.  It has been decided that in the spirit of this requirement and of open communication, we will publish these minutes on our website.  This will be done after their formal approval at a subsequent full meeting. They are a facsimile of the paper versions held on file by the school.
