There is a vacancy for one Parent Governor on the school’s Governing Body.  Nominations are sought for the vacancy, a link to the nomination form is below.

Parent Governor Nomination Form

In general, any parent of a registered pupil at the School at the time of the election is eligible to be a Parent Governor.  However, no parent may be a member of more than two governing bodies, and there are strict rules on eligibility (see nomination form). 

The completed form should be returned to the school by Thursday 29th March 2018. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that the nomination is given in to the office for the attention of Clerk to the Governing Body.

If there are more nominations received than the number of vacancies for Parent Governors, then an election will take place.  Voting papers will be sent to all parents with children at the School.

Training courses for Governors are provided free of charge by the Authority. Information is also circulated from time to time regarding courses arranged by outside bodies for which a fee may be payable.
