Job/Person Summary

We are looking for a co-opted school governor to join to our Governing Body, so if you are looking for a new challenge, enjoy working as part of a team and are interested in giving something back to your community, this could be the opportunity for you.

School Governors perform the most important voluntary role in education. A school governing body is made up of representatives from the school, the parents, the local authority and the local community. School governors work with the school leaders to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the school, monitor, and hold leaders to account for its performance and have oversight of the budget. All this is done to ensure that the community we serve is afforded the best educational experience available.
