All parents and carers of registered pupils at both schools are eligible to become parent governors. Governors play an important part in the leadership of both schools and work together with staff to make sure that the schools provide a challenging and supportive environment for all our pupils. Governors do not need to be experts in the field of education, but you do need to have the time and the willingness to get involved. Meetings are held in the evenings, but it is important you are able to visit the school once a term during normal hours, so you can see the school in action. It is also expected that you will undertake training to help you develop as a governor. Sessions are usually held in the evening or online at a time of your choosing. Governors also need to be able to work as team and develop relationships with a range of people, have the ability to question and to make connections between different types of information. We would be interested to hear from parents/carers with experience or expertise in finance/accountancy, human resources and procurement, who possess professional leadership skills, and those who have links with the local community. We would particularly welcome applications from younger parents/carers and from a wide range of ethnicities to reflect the school community and to provide a sufficient diversity of perspectives to ensure robust challenge. The usual term of office is four years from the date of appointment.
Initial expressions of interest and requests for further information should be made to the Clerk to the Governing Body, Mrs Maria Page at firstname.lastname@example.org
