All governors may be contacted through the school office or by email in the first instance through the Headteacher:

head@acocksgreen.bham.sch.uk

 The full Governing Body meets at least once a term.

When a vacancy for parent governor arises, nominations are requested from parents of pupils at the school. A secret ballot of parents then follows. All candidates are allowed to distribute an election address to parents.
