Are you enthusiastic about education? Do you have some time to spare?
If so, then you may be just the person we need!
The Governing Body are seeking to appoint new governors to join their hardworking and committed team.
We have two vacancies, in the co-opted governor category.
Who are we looking for?
We would particularly, but not exclusively welcome applications from people with experience in:
Board member in another sector
Health and Safety (H&S officer, union rep etc)
How do I become a governor?
The recruitment process initially requires you to complete an application form.
The next stage is the completion of a skills audit, to allow the Governing board to understand your skill set.
The final stage is an interview with the Headteacher and Chair of Governors.
What is the role of a governor?
The Governing Board operates at a strategic level and is not involved in the day-to-day running of the school. We are responsible for both the conduct of the school and for the promotion of high standards. We carry out this role by setting the vision for the school, ensuring that the school works efficiently and effectively towards achieving its vision, and that the school provides a high quality education for its pupils. This is done by building a thorough knowledge of the school and its community, by both supporting and constructively challenging the school, and by ensuring accountability and compliance.
Do I need to be an expert in education?
Governors need not be experts in the field of education. What they do need is an interest in the school and in the welfare of its pupils, together with the time and willingness to get involved. The skills you have can be very useful to the Governing Board.
What else is important?
Governors also need ‘soft skills’ – the ability to be able to build relationships with a range of people, to be able to work as part of a team, to be able to question, and to make connections between different types of information. All governors are expected to be able to read budget reports and data on school standards.
