Every maintained school in England has a Governing Body responsible to the local community for running the school. There is currently 1 vacancy for a Parent Governor. The term of office will be 4 years.
If you are interested in standing for election as a Parent Governor of the school, please complete the nomination form (linked below), ensuring that you obtain the signature of 2 parents/legal guardians who support your nomination. You must also include a brief election statement. If more than one nomination is received, I shall send all parents voting papers, which will include the candidates’ election statements. Nominations should be with me by 4pm on Friday 19th March 2021.
In the event of a ballot, I have arranged for votes to be counted at 3pm on Friday 26 th March or at a time mutually agreed with all candidates and each candidate, or his authorised representative, may attend the count. I shall arrange for all parents to be notified of the result.
I have enclosed an extract from the Regulations concerning the qualifications and disqualification connected with the office of governor, which you should read carefully. If you have any queries about them or about the procedure, I shall be pleased to answer them.
All elected parent governors are required to complete an enhanced criminal record application within 21 days of their election.
