COMMUNITY GOVERNOR VACANCY
We currently have NO Community Governor vacancies.
Community governors are people who live or work in, or have ties to the local community. This position is not restricted to those who are in work and we have benefited from the skills brought by many retirees, stay at home parents and those in between employment.
Many employers encourage their staff to become a school governor and allow reasonable time off to fulfil these duties, including training. They realise that the skills gained through being a school governor are transferable to the workplace.
Prospective governors should submit the application form below, to the Governing Body for consideration. Where appropriate, the applicant may be invited to meet with the vice chair of governors, to chat about what it involved with being a governor and what skills and experience they bring.
1) The prospective governors’ application form is circulated to governors in advance of the next Governing Body meeting;
2) At the next meeting, governors cast their votes via secret ballot, taking into account the information provided by the candidate, and the balance of skills and representation of sections of the community on the Governing Body;
3) The minutes of the meeting will record the decision made by the Governing Body to appoint or not and the candidate will be notified in writing within five working days.
A person cannot apply for appointment, or continuing to hold office as a community governor of a school if
they are disqualified under any of the criteria listed in the following link
