The role of a parent governor

As a governor, you will bring the unique perspective of a parent to the school’s governing body. Together with your colleagues on the governing body, you will be making decisions which will help to ensure the school meets the needs of all its pupils and enabling all to achieve.

What skills do I need 

This is a challenging and exciting role and you will learn new skills and extend existing ones during your time on the governing body. You do not need any specific skills or experience to start with. Governors do not need to be experts in the field of education; what they do need is a commitment to the school and to the welfare of the pupils, as well as the time and willingness to get involved. 

All parents, carers and guardians of children at the school are eligible to be candidates.  

The deadline for all applications is Thursday 31st  January 2018 at 11.00 am.
