‘Learning for our Future’

Current governor vacancies and training

We want to recruit individuals who are passionate about the school’s vision and values, share its ethos and are willing to dedicate the time to be a critical friend who can help us achieve our goals as a school. 


We currently have the following vacancies:

  • 3 co-opted governors


Co-opted governors are appointed by the governing body because they have the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.  The governing body can appoint co-opted governors to fill skills gaps on the governing body.  Co-opted governors may be parents of children registered at the school. 


Parent governors are usually parents of children registered at the school nominated and elected to join the governing body by parents.  If only one parent stands for election (for the one vacancy) the governing body may appoint a parent governor.  Parent governors do not ‘represent’ parents but rather bring a parental perspective to the governing body. 


If you are interested in finding out more about this position please read the role description provided below or contact Helen Bush, Chair of Governors, via the email or contact Helen via the school office by calling 01296 487973.
