Dear Parents and Carers,
PARENT GOVERNOR ELECTION
Would you – or someone you know – like to be a Parent Governor? Our School Governing Body has a vacancy for a Parent Governor and we are looking for nominations from parents who would be interested in filling this role.
The role of the Governing Body is to help shape the overall direction of the School, monitor progress and standards, review and approve the budget, appoint and support the Headteacher and senior staff, review policies and procedures and ensure the School fulfils its statutory duties.
Governing Body meetings are held on Tuesday evenings. There are six meetings a year and Governors are also expected to be a member of a sub-committee which will also meet on a Tuesday six times a year. For more information about the role of a School Governor please contact our Clerk, Martha Blackwell, (email@example.com). Training and support will also be provided.
If you are interested, please fill in the form below, including the signatures of a proposer and a seconder who must be a parent or carer of a pupil at our school. Please also include a short statement about yourself (a maximum of 150 words) with, if you wish, a passport sized photograph. This information will be circulated to all parents in the event of an election; which will be held if there is more than one nomination. Your form, statement and optional photograph should be given to Dot at Reception by 12.30pm on Wednesday 2nd May 2018.
The election will be by ballot and every eligible parent will be able to vote. We will send you more information about this later.
The closing date for the receipt of nominations is 12.30pm on Wednesday 2nd May 2018. Please contact Dot at Reception if you require another copy of this letter. A copy can also be found on the School Website.
