SCHOOL GOVERNING BODY
There is currently 1 place for a parent governor on this school’s Governing Body. The Governor will be elected from among, and by parents of pupils at the school.
The Governing Body has very important responsibilities for the strategic direction and development of the school. It is part of the partnership that exists between the School and Local Education Authority for the raising of educational standards and School Governors with a parental perspective can make an enormous contribution to the work of the Governing Body.
At this stage, nominations are requested for parents wishing to stand for election. You may nominate yourself or your partner, provided that three other parents sign the nomination. You may nominate another parent of a child at the school, provided that two other parents sign the nomination. The election will be by secret ballot.
Any parent or person having parental responsibility for a child at the school is eligible to make a nomination and to vote. Once someone is elected as a parent governor, he or she does not have to resign if their child leaves the school. The normal term for governors is four years.
If you wish to submit a nomination, please collect a nomination form from Mrs Mortimer in the school office and complete and return it to me by Wednesday 18th January. If the nominee wishes, a brief written statement about him or herself may also be submitted for circulation to the parents. It must be stressed that this is purely optional.
Please note: For legal reasons certain people may be disqualified from becoming a governor. For further details please see the nomination form. All new Governors are now required to undergo the Police Screening procedure.
