Parent Governor Opportunity on the Governing Body
Following an organisational change in the Governing Body (GB), we now have an exciting opportunity for a parent to join our Governing Body. We are looking for applicants who have a breadth of skills that may enable them to oversee specific governor responsibilities such as Safeguarding or HR, and who may aspire to take on the role of Vice Chair or Chair at some point in the future. In its pursuit to provide first-class support and challenge, the Governing Body are keen to ensure that it is diverse, with representation that can offer a wide range of opinions, experience, perspectives and beliefs. As such, we would particularly welcome applications from groups that are currently underrepresented. Applicants should note there is a requirement on occasion to take part in some governing duties during the school day as and when required. Please click here for more information.
