We are inviting nominations for TWO Parent Governors

You are invited to stand for election as a parent governor, or nominate another parent to do so.  The term of office is four years from 14 October 2019.

We would particularly encourage parents with a background in Law, HR or Education to consider standing, but all parents, no matter what their field, are eligible and welcome to apply.

The governing body, with the headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school.  No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the governing body’s work.  Training is available for all governors and this governing body has an expectation that those new to being a governor attend free induction training.

We sent you a Groupcall message yesterday containing full details of the election process and a nomination form.  Further copies of the nomination form can be collected from Mrs Christina Thompson, Administrator for the Governing Body (based in the Pupil Support Office)

Nomination forms MUST be received by Mrs Christina Thompson by 3.45pm on Monday 30 September 2019.

The Nomination form can be:
