Governor Vacancies

Do you have what it takes to be a School Governor?


We have an exciting opportunity for a PARENT to join our Governing Body. Governors work in partnership with the Headteacher and Local Authority. Their duties are wide-ranging and include agreeing the School Improvement Priorities, deciding how the school budget will be set, monitoring pupil progress and attainment, recruiting teachers and staff and agreeing school policies.  It is important to understand that becoming a member of the board is a long-term commitment (4 years is the usual term of office) so you need to evaluate whether you are able to give this commitment before expressing an interest.  We want to build a board of Governors with the skills and experience to support and challenge the school to continuously improve and be the school of choice in the area.  We can only do that if governors stay on the board and continue to grow during their term of office.


Governors are expected to attend at least 6 full governing body meetings per year as well as participating in termly school visits.  Each Governor also takes on an area of responsibility as they feel confident to do so, often with the support of other governors.  Visits to school enable governors to gather first hand evidence of the work of the school to support reports and information provided by the school and external advisers and enable governors to challenge and support the school to continuously improve. These meetings are usually in the evening and are currently held remotely.  Governors may also be asked to be part of Extraordinary Panels such as Headteacher Performance Management, Pay Committee or hearing formal complaints or appeals. 


We welcome applications from everyone and see the value of the different experiences and skills each applicant will bring to the table; however, if you possess skills and experience in the following areas, we’d particularly love to hear from you:


  • Finance

  • Human resources

  • Health and Safety including premises management


A diverse governing board will help children from all backgrounds to succeed and thrive – it allows us to create a culture of inclusion, challenge barriers, biases and stereotypes, and provide a wide range of role models for our pupils. We encourage all members of the local community, regardless of age, experience and background, to apply for the role.


All Governors are required to undergo a Disclosure & Barring Check (DBS). The DBS check enables organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors to make safer recruitment decisions.


For further information about the role, please contact the Clerk to the Governors Laura Corcoran: or Sue Simmons, the Chair of Governors: for an informal chat.
