Parent Governor 

We have 1 vacancy for parent governor that needs to be filled for January 2018.  Being a parent Governor is an important and responsible role.  There are three meetings of all Governors each year as well as a number of committee meetings with specific delegation and terms of reference.   

The job of the Governors is to make decisions about how the school is run.  Governors are strategic leaders of the school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education.  Your focus will be to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction; holding the head teacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff and overseeing the financial performance of the school, making sure its money is well spent. 

As a Governor you will be asked to sign up to a code of conduct, to work in accordance with the Governance Handbook and Competency Framework (where appropriate) and be willing to undertake Diocesan and LA training. 

If you become a Governor, you’d be expected to serve for four years.   

To put yourself forward as a Governor please fill in the form that your child will bring home tonight (this form maybe posted to separated parents) including a biography (pen portrait) outlining your skills and how these would contribute to effective governance and return it to the Head Teacher no later than noon on the 17th November.  You may wish to nominate another parent.  Please ensure that you have their consent to put their name forward before doing so.  If we have more people come forward then we have vacancies, we will hold an election.   

Please contact the head teacher to find out more about what being a parent Governor involves.
