We currently have one vacancy for a staff governors which will be filled by an election within the staff body.

We will have a vacancy for a co-opted governor when a current governor’s term expires.  We are looking to recruit a governor from the local community who, ideally, is not a current or former parent as we are well-represented in that respect.  Based on our most recent skills audit; we will be looking to appoint a governor with experience of publicity and marketing and a strong knowledge of the local community that can be demonstrated through their service to that community.

If you feel you can bring these skills to our governing body then please contact us via the school office. Governors need to be able to offer a solid commitment to attend at least 1 meeting each half term, as well as attending additional training sessions as required and coming into school during the day to take part in monitoring and other experiences so please consider this before applying.

All governors are also members of the Business Committee. The full governing body meets once each term, and the business committee also meets one each term.

Governors can be contacted via the chair through the school office.
