Governor Vacancy


We currently have one vacancy for a Parent Governor Role on our Governing Board. 


Parent governors are not elected to represent parents as a group, but are elected in order to contribute to the work of the governing board. 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 should model and uphold the school mission, ethos and values through your work in school. 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 training.

To put yourself forward as a Parent Governor please fill in the attached form including a biography (pen portrait) outlining your skills and experiences and how these would contribute to effective governance and return it to the Head teacher no later than noon on Wednesday 18th September (either a hard copy or as an email attachment to school email address 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 than one applicant, we will hold an election on Friday 20th September- parents/carers will receive a copy of each candidate’s biography and will be asked to place a vote.
