Vacancy for Parent Governor
- By Clare Giordmaine
- Posted 17th March 2017
The Local Governing Body has a vacancy for one parent Governor.
The Local Governing Body is looking for parents to join us to help the school continue to develop and succeed. The role of a School governor is a fulfilling and rewarding one.
A background in education is not essential although at this current time would complement the skill base of current Governors along with knowledge of Finance, PR and Marketing, and the wider community.
School Governors hold a strategic role:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the Headteacher and staff to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of staff;
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure money is well spent
In-house and external training is provided and a mentor will be assigned to you to support you as you develop to become an effective Governor.
If there are more candidates than there are vacancies, there will be an election by secret ballot.
The deadline for nominations is 12 noon on Thursday, 6th April 2017.
Meetings are always held in the early evening.
If you would like to register an interest or discuss the role further please email or call Shirley Boden, Clerk to the Governing Body, on 01275 842606 or firstname.lastname@example.org
