Grounds for disqualification fall into three broad categories:

  • general grounds;
  • grounds that apply to particular categories of governor; and
  • grounds that arise because of particular failings or actions on the part of the governor.

All the grounds for disqualification apply also to associate members except that associate members can be registered pupils at the school and can be under 18.

Full details of the disqualification criteria can be found in schedule 4 of The School Governance (Constitution)(England) Regulations 2012 which are availble to download here.
