Parent Governor election – Nominations wanted!
We have a vacancy for a Parent Governor and we need you! We have a team of governors with a range of different skills and experiences but a shared commitment to improving the school. We are especially interested in receiving applications from people who would improve the diversity of the governing body. In particular, we would like to see more governors from ethnic minorities and a broader range of social backgrounds. All families will receive a letter and nomination form this week, which they can use to nominate themselves or someone else (with their consent). Please do not put off applying because you feel that governors may need particular skills. You do not need any special qualifications or previous experience of governance as we offer support and training for new governors. It does involve spending some time in the school and at a few meetings each term and we also expect that those new to being a governor will take advantage of the free training that is provided. If you are thinking of applying but would like a conversation with an existing governor first, please feel free to contact Julian Turner, Chair of Governors at firstname.lastname@example.org.
