Parent Governor Election

 

Dear Parents/Carers

 

We have a vacancy for a parent governor which we need to fill as soon as possible.  Parent governors are elected by and from the parents of children currently attending our school.  They serve a four-year term of office and bring a very important and valued perspective to the work of the governing body.

 

You might like to look at the information for prospective governors on the National Governors Association website https://www.nga.org.uk/Governance-Recruitment/Be-a-school-governor-or-trustee.aspx    Further information on the role can also be obtained through the school office or by speaking to one of us in school.

 

The governing body has a vital role to play in making sure every child receives the best possible education. This is achieved by ensuring that governors have the necessary skills and commitment to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.  The particular skills that governing bodies need will vary, and will include personal qualities and capabilities, such as the capacity and willingness to learn and work as part of a team. It is expected that governors will make use of the various training opportunities available to them and play a full part in the work of the governing body.

 

If you are interested in becoming a governor, contact the school office with your nomination (self nomination is acceptable), which will need to be with the school by 12.00 noon on Monday 14th. September 2020.

 

If there are more nominations than vacancies, an election will be held and you will be sent a voting paper.

 

Yours sincerely

 

 

 

Headteacher & Chair of Governors
