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.

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.

Meetings are always held in the early evening.

If there are more candidates than there are vacancies, there will be an election by secret ballot.
