We currently have vacancies for two co-opted governors on our Governing Body and are seeking volunteers to join us – perhaps that somebody is you?

We are keen to ensure that our Governing Body represents the school’s wider community and has a balance and diversity of knowledge, skills and experience to enable it to be effective. We are, though, especially interested in hearing from individuals with a financial or children’s services background or with experience of building or premises management.

Anyone aged over 18 can be a governor. There is no requirement for you to have experience in the education system, just the necessary skills, character and time to contribute. Full training is available and governors are encouraged to attend regular development sessions, either in person or online.

As we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children, these positions are subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service check.
If you would like to find out more and perhaps have an informal chat, then please feel free to contact me via the school office either by telephone on 02380 261900 or via the administration office e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
