PARENT GOVERNOR ELECTION (December 2018)
We currently have a vacancy for a parent governor which we are seeking nominations for.
The governing board, with the headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. Governing bodies have three core strategic functions:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos & strategic direction;
- Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school & its pupils; and
- Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and to be prepared to play an active part in the governing board’s work. The majority of the work is in attending meetings and getting to know the school. Training is available for all governors & this governing board has an expectation that those new to being a governor attend free induction training.
