School Governors Wanted

Do you want to be part of a fast moving, friendly school with a big future?

We are currently looking for new co-opted governors to join our friendly governing body. Our governors come from a range of different backgrounds, skills and experience but all share a common interest of wanting the best possible education for the children in our school.

We would be delighted to hear from anyone who:-

  • Is interested in children’s education and the performance of the school
  • Is community spirited and would like to represent the community
  • Has spare time and the energy for the role
  • Is able to work well as part of a team
  • Has an enquiring mind and the confidence to ask questions and debate issues that affect the school
  • Can consider matters objectively and make informed judgements These volunteer positions are open to parents/guardians or other people from our community. Co-opted governors are not elected by a parent election but are instead appointed directly by the governing body. What is the role of the governing body?
  • Helping to set and review the schools strategic direction and agreeing targets for improvement
  • Holding the headteacher and school leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure public money is well spent

What does the role offer?

  • A chance to develop your own personal skills
  • Access to a programme of free training in respect of education/governance matters
  • A sense of achievement in helping make a difference to children reaching their potential
  • The support and guidance from fellow governors

In looking to fill these vacancies we are particularly interested in applications from people with education experience and also people who can occasionally visit the school during the day, although please do not be put off if you do not have these skills. What is more important is enthusiasm, interest and the willingness to learn.

If you are interested or know of somebody else who would be then please complete an application form and return to school.

If you would like to discuss any aspects of the role before submitting an application please leave your contact details with the school office and a member of the governing board will be more than happy to call you or meet up for an informal chat.

Governors are essential for the effectiveness and success of the school and it is an extremely rewarding and fulfilling role.
