Parent Governor Vacancy

We are looking to recruit two Parent Governors to our newly formed Local Governing Body for The Polesworth School.
We are looking for people who have the skill to act as a ‘critical friend’ and ask challenging questions about performance and use their skills and experience to support the school in addressing its aims.

The role of the governing body is a strategic one and its key functions are:

• to contribute to and fulfil the vision and ethos of the Community Academies Trust in so far as it relates to the school
• implement and review the strategic plan for the school
• to support and challenge the school’s leadership as a critical friend
• to scrutinise and oversee the management of the schools finances
• to support the Headteacher in the development and review of an appropriate staffing structure for the school
• to develop links with the school’s community
• to ensure that pupils and parents have a voice in the running and improvement of the school

If you are aged 18 or over and are able to commit around 10 to 15 hours per term to the role, we would love to hear from you. You would need to be a parent of a student at the school. No prior knowledge is needed – training and support is offered and available to all new and existing governors.

This is an extremely rewarding role, one which holds great importance within our schools and trust. If you feel that you have skills which could be transferred to help make a real difference to childrens’ lives, please contact us for further information.
