Please would you consider becoming a governor for our local primary school?

Governance and working as part of a governing body team is rewarding, interesting and makes a huge difference to the school, its pupils and the community. Our school will have two foundation governor vacancies from September 2021. All governors on a church school governing board work collectively to ensure the effectiveness of the school as a place of learning, where Christian values flourish, regardless of their category. All Church of England schools must have foundation governors who additionally support and promote the Christian foundations on which the school was built.

Anyone wishing to serve as a governor must be over 18 and will have to apply through an agreed process to ensure that they are suitable to support a school under their chosen category. Most importantly prospective governors must have the time, appropriate skills and commitment to help the governing board and school provide outstanding outcomes and experiences for all children and staff.

I do hope you will consider this opportunity. To find out more about the role please speak to Sarah Varnom, Nicci Boddam-Whetham or Jennifer Pratley (currently foundation governors).
