We currently have 3 vacancies on the governing body (1 parent, 2 co-opted).
We are particularly keen to recruit new governors with education and/or finance expertise. We are also keen to improve the diversity of the governing body and ensure it reflects the local community.
If you would like to find out more about being a governor for our school, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
When vacancies arise on our Governing Body, we look for applicants who have the skills required to contribute to effective governance and the success of the school. Governors need a strong commitment to the role and to improving outcomes for children, the inquisitiveness to question and analyse, and the willingness to learn.
Our governors serve a four-year term of office (even if, as a parent governor, your child leaves the school during this time). We meet 3 times as a whole governing body and have a number of committees that usually meet once per term. We expect each governor to become a member of a committee and take on some additional responsibilities as a link governor. We offer a full induction package, a mentoring system and availability of in-house, central and on-line training packages.
To apply for a Co-opted Governor role you will be required to provide a profile outlining a little about yourself and the skills that you would bring to the school as a governor. You can apply at any time by contacting the Chair of Governors.
When we have Parent Governor vacancies, the recruitment process will be outlined and communicated by the school to all with parental responsibility to current pupils of the school.
Please do not hesitate to contact either the Chair of Governors or any serving member of the governing body if you would like to discuss potential future roles or the work of the Governing Body. More information about the role of school governor is also available from the National Governor Association:
