Process for Reappointments Reappointment Form

Deadlines for Returning Appointment Forms

The completed appointment and reappointment forms must be sent to  to enable the Diocesan Board of Education (DBE) to consider and approve the appointment. The DBE meets 3 times per year and there is no delegated authority.

Having a gap in a term of office or a vacancy on the Governing Body can be inconvenient and may cause difficulties that can easily be avoided. It is important therefore to ensure that applications are submitted in good time so that they can be processed and approved without leaving a gap. The following timescales are intended to clarify the timescales within which paperwork needs to be submitted and completed (i.e. to include all authorising signatures and any required confirmation of PCC nomination).
