Parent Governor Vacancy

By   /  16/05/2018  /  Comments Off on Parent Governor Vacancy

There are two vacancies for parent governors to join the governing body team to support the strategic direction of the school. This is an important and exciting opportunity for someone who can contribute fresh and stimulating ideas and an excellent way to get to know and be involved with your child’s school.

We welcome applications from all parents/carers who have a child registered at the school. We are also keen to encourage those from under-represented groups to apply, such as black and minority ethnic backgrounds, in order to reflect the diversity of the pupils in our school. Experience of working in education is not required. A willingness to learn is essential, as well as having the time to commit to supporting the school to develop and to act as a ‘critical friend’.

If you are interested, please complete and return the nomination form here. We have included some information about being a governor, which you should consider carefully to ensure you can commit to the role and there is further information on our website. Self-nominations will be accepted but if you are nominating another parent please seek their prior consent. You will then be invited to meet with a member of the governing body to complete some paperwork and find out more about the role.

If we receive more than one nomination, the parent body will decide who will be elected. This is why we ask all applicants to complete a statement of between 150 and 200 words to support their nomination, so that parents can make an informed decision when casting their votes. You should outline why you wish to be a parent governor and what you feel you can offer the school. You may include any information which you consider relevant – whether that be your work and life experiences, or your experience as a parent.

The closing date for the return of completed applications is Friday 25th May 2018

If you have any questions about the process or role, or are interested in assisting the governing body in some other way, please contact Janet Johnson, Clerk to Governors: JJohnson@PatchamHigh.org.uk

 

Yours sincerely

Headteacher                                     Chair of Governors
