Who are the Governors?

School Governors are a team of people who work closely with the Headteacher to make key decisions vital to the successful running of the school. The Governors appoint the Headteacher and make decisions that directly affect the education and well-being of the children. They play an important role in improving standards throughout the school and agree the school’s budget. As a church school our Governing Body comprises foundation governors appointed by the church and other people from different walks of life. This brings a good balance of skills to move the school forward.

Parent Governor Vacancy

We currently have a vacancy for a parent governor on our Federated Governing Board.

No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the schools and be prepared to play an active part in the Governing Board’s work. However, we would particularly welcome nominations from parents with skills in premises / project management, Health and Safety and / or legal services. Training is available for all governors and this Governing Board has an expectation that those new to being a governor attend free induction training.

Meetings of the Board take place once every half term during the school day (usually afternoons).

If you would like to stand for election, or nominate another parent to do so, please complete a nomination form and return it to the school by post or email no later than 12 noon on 18th September 2020. Please include a short personal statement to support your nomination, which should be no longer than 250 words. Self-nominations will be accepted but if you are nominating another parent, please seek their prior consent and advise them that they need to submit a personal statement.

For more information about the role of a governor and the nomination process please see the documents at the bottom of the page.
