Community Governor Vacancy

Are you interested in being a Community Governor and supporting the on-going success of a local school?

We are looking to recruit a Community Governor to our School Standards Committee (formally known as the Local Governing Body) for The Polesworth School, part of Community Academies Trust (CAT).

We are looking for people who have the skill to act as a ‘critical friend’, ask challenging questions about performance and use their skills and experience to support the school in addressing its aims. You will be involved in creating and developing a strategic plan for the school, setting and agreeing objectives, and monitoring and evaluating the schools’ success by focusing on progress and outcomes – within CAT, this is known as being ‘Guardians of Standards’.

This is a voluntary position. If you are aged 18 or over and are able to commit around 10 to 15 hours per term to the role, which includes a School Standards Committee meeting and pre-reading of associated papers each half term we would love to hear from you.

You do not need to be a parent of a pupil 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 children’s lives, please contact us.

For further information and an opportunity to discuss this role, please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs Rebecca Shakespeare (Clerk to the SSC) on 01827 702205 or email where an appointment will be made for you to speak with the Chair of Governors Dr Sue Eaton.

Nomination forms, a skills audit form, and Terms of Reference are available by email from Mrs Rebecca Shakespeare

The closing date for receipt of nomination forms is Friday 20th October 2023, 2.00pm. Interviews will take place in November 2023.
