Governing Body Vacancies

January 2024


Are you passionate about achieving the best possible outcomes for children?

Are you inquisitive, curious and enthusiastic?

Do you have good inter-personal skills and enjoy learning and working together as a team?

“Have you ever thought about volunteering as a school governor?”

We currently have two vacancies on our friendly and welcoming school governing body and are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who would be interested in taking on this enjoyable and rewarding role.

Our governors are a collaborative team of volunteers who work closely with the Headteacher, making strategic decisions vital to the successful running of the school, and which will directly affect the education and wellbeing of our children. They make a valuable contribution to our school community, offering time, enthusiasm and commitment. Membership of our board includes the Headteacher and school staff, parents new and old, and volunteers from the local area.

Governors usually meet in school five times a year on a Tuesday evening between 6pm-8pm. We also have two committees, one focusing on pupil attainment, progress and the curriculum and the other on finance, premises & personnel matters. Each committee meets virtually for one hour, three times a year, and governors are asked to join one of these two committees.

No experience of governance or education is needed to join our governing body. We provide a full induction for new governors, have lots of training resources and our experienced governors are happy to provide help and advice. All applications are valued and welcome.

If you think you, or someone you know, could be interested in becoming a school governor and would like further information, please email either myself at, or our Clerk to Governors Julie Fowler at Alternatively, our Headteacher Claire FitzPatrick would be happy to have an informal chat about this when you are in school.

We hope to hear from you soon!
