Vacancy on the Governing Body
A vacancy has arisen for a co-opted governor on our governing body.
The governing body is responsible for both the overview of the school and for promoting high standards. The governing body carries out its role by setting the vision for the school and then ensuring that the school works efficiently and effectively towards achieving its vision. It does this by building a thorough knowledge of the school and its community, by both supporting and constructively challenging the school, and by ensuring accountability and compliance. The governing body of our school is made up of parent governors, staff governors, co-opted governors and one Local Authority governor.
Governors need not be experts in the field of education. What they do need is an interest in the school and in the welfare of our children and the time and willingness to get involved. The skills you have can be very useful to the governing body. Currently the governing body is looking to recruit a governor who has expertise in:
financial planning skills, linked to budget setting and monitoring financial performance
understanding and assimilating data. It is not necessary to be conversant with school performance data but a level of comfort with figures and the ability to be analytical would be helpful
