Parent Governor Vacancies
The Management Committee governing board is responsible for both the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards. The governing board 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 board of our school is made up of parent governors, staff governors and local authority governors.
A vacancy has arisen for a parent governor on our governing board. The governing board is asking you to put yourself forward if you would like to join IMPACT’s Management Committee, you can do this by simply calling the school office to nominate yourself or someone with parental responsibility for a child at the school. If more than one nomination is received, then a ballot will be held.
Before you decide to nominate someone, or indeed stand yourself, you may want to know a bit more about what is involved. 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 board. Our governing board expects governors to:
attend 4 meetings of the full governing board per academic year.
sit on 1 committee and attend the meetings which are usually 3 times per academic year.
commit to attend training courses if required.
If you would like to find out more about how you can contribute to governance at our school, please email me with your contact details and I will pass on your details to the chair who will then arrange a time for a conversation. You might also like to look at the information for prospective governors on the Department for Education website: https://www.gov.uk/government/get-involved/take-part/volunteer-as-a-school-governor
Please note that for the protection of children all governor appointments are subject to a vetting process and identity check.
Please note the closing date for nominations is Friday 9th December 2016
If you would like to put yourself forward or have any questions, please contact Jackie Maguire 01704 395948 at the School Office.
