Governor Election

Since we converted to become an Academy within the Learning Community Trust we have developed a strong and talented new local governing body. They are a committed group of volunteers who have great areas of expertise in areas that support the working school.

Due to our previous parent Governor becoming chair we now have a vacancy for the position of Secondary Parent Governor. The position is vitally important as it acts as the voice of the parent body and advises school leadership on that most important perspective of school life. Please click below for a further description:

Please read the notes on the attached below and if, after doing so, you would like to put your name forward as a candidate please complete the Candidate Nomination Form (Form 2) and the Disqualification Declaration Form (Form 3) and return by Wednesday 27th February. Please either deliver to reception or post with the attention of Principal PA: Veronica Croft to the school address.

It may be that you would wish to propose another parent to serve as a parent governor. Please note that in this case the parent in question should complete the nomination form after you have discussed the possibility.

Candidates need to submit a personal statement in support of their nomination, not more than 500 words giving:

• Evidence of skills and experience the governing body desires.
• How they plan to contribute to the future work of the GB

They may not indicate that they are endorsed or supported by any particular group.

Only parents who now have and will have children registered at the school during the 2018/19 academic year are eligible to stand for election.

If it is necessary for there to be an election, we will provide further details of the arrangements.
