Parent Governor Election Info

    Nominations are now being invited for the position of Parent Governor on our school’s Governing Body 


    We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with an aptitude for figures and finance/ business skills. However, the most important qualifications are enthusiasm, energy and a commitment to the role. The school has high expectations of the time and commitment required of its governors to effectively fulfil their roles.


    Parent governors play an important role as members of the governing body, which is responsible for ensuring all pupils within the school have access to a high-quality education provision in-line with the shared vision of the Palladian Academy Trust. Due to a parent governor reaching the end of their four-year term of office, we have a vacancy for a new parent governor to join the governing body in February 2019.


    Training is available for all governors and those new to being a governor are encouraged to attend induction training. All our governors are expected to follow the Palladian Academy Trust Code of Conduct and agree to a DBS application being made.


    If you would like to stand for election, please complete a nomination form to be returned to the school, FAO the Clerk to Governors, no later than noon on Friday 14 December 2018. Anyone standing for election must certify that they are not disqualified to stand for any reason. 


    Nomination forms and further information on the role of parent governors, including a summary of the statutory qualifications, can be found below, or from the school office on request.
