We have a vacancy for a parent governor, which we need to fill from December 2018. The Arnewood School has always aimed for a partnership with parents and being a parent governor is a great opportunity to volunteer to benefit children and the community.
The governing body’s main tasks are:
- to ensure that the school has a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- to hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its students;
- to oversee the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
Parent governors are welcomed as valued members of the team and play a vital role in ensuring the governing body is aware of the views of parents and the local community. We feel sure that there are parents prepared to take on this important role who are willing to give their time and commitment to helping us to continue to improve the school’s performance.
In looking to fill this vacancy the governors of the school have identified the following skills, experience and attributes that they feel would help strengthen the governing body:
- Financial experience
- KS2 Governance Service
- HR experience
Training and support will be available to help you develop into the role. This will include in-house mentoring and support as well as access to external governor training.
If you feel you can help in this capacity please fill in the application form below which will need to be completed and returned to Mrs Woods, Cleark to the Governing Body, by 12.00 noon on Wednesday 14th November 2018.
Please note that for the protection of children all governor appointments are subject to an identity check, and are subject to safeguarding investigation that requires the disclosure of criminal convictions.
If there are more applications than vacancies, we will hold an election and you will be sent a voting paper in due course. You may return the ballot paper either via your child or by post.
