Parent Governor Election - Nominations

I am writing to let you know that the term of office of one of our serving parent governors expires on 12th October 2016 and there will be a position available to serve on the Governing Board. 

Becoming a governor is very rewarding and worthwhile experience. Effective governors do not need educational expertise but do need to be committed to their school, willing to ask questions and offer appropriate challenge and support. 

They also need to be able to work as an enthusiastic member of the governing board team with the aim of raising and maintaining high educational standards for all children. Governors are asked to act with integrity, honesty and objectivity and act at all times in the best interests of the school. 

The prime focus of the Governing Board is to develop the strategic direction of the school, be accountable to stakeholders and to ensure that financial resources are spent appropriately. 

Governors also have a number of opportunities to access training or development to develop and enhance their knowledge and skills. 

It is important to note that governors are elected or appointed to bring the experience of that individual as a member of the governing board. Once elected, parent governors are a representative parent but not a delegate. This means they are not expected to report back to parents on any matters relating to the school or governing board without prior consent from the governing board. 

Further information about the commitment and role of a governor can be gained by visiting the school website and/or the LA Governor Services website at
