The composition of the board of management for schools with more than one teacher is

  • Two direct nominees of the patron
  • Two parents of children enrolled in the school (one mother and one father) elected by the parents
  • The principal
  • One other teacher elected by the teaching staff.
  • Two community members agreed by the representatives of the patron, teachers and parents.

In general, members of the board may not hold any interest in the school property or get paid for serving on the board. The Education Act 1998 explicitly clarifies that being on the board does not confer any property interest on a board member. Employees, other than the teacher representatives, may not be on the board.

The term of office is 4 years and members are eligible for reappointment when their term of office expires.
