School Governor Vacancy

Would you like to be more involved with your local school?

If you would, why not consider becoming a school co-opted governor. There are currently two vacancies for a co-opted governor at this school.

What do school governors do?

  • Oversee the budget
  • Help recruit staff
  • Monitor the performance of the school, e.g. in examinations and key stage tests
  • Advise on school policies and procedures
  • Provide a vital means for parents and the community to get their views heard by the governing body as a whole

 Are you interested?

If you are interested in becoming a co-opted governor but feel a little daunted by the responsibility you may be taking on, remember that full training will be available and you will always act as part of a team.

What skills are required?

You will need an interest in the school and in the welfare of our children and the time and willingness to get involved. Would you consider applying?

For these posts we are looking for Governors who are willing to stand as Vice Chair with an aim of becoming Chair of Governors.  Training and support to prepare the governor for these roles will be provided.

Governors also need the ability to be able to build relationships with a range of people, to be able to work as part of a team, to be able to question and to make connections between different types of information.

To reflect the diversity of our community we particularly welcome applications from Black and minority ethnic candidates.

Your Commitment
If you become a governor you will be taking on the following commitments to help make sure the school is well managed:

  • Share the responsibilities of the governing body as summarised above.
  • Attend and participate in governors meetings on a regular basis – the governors generally meet six times a year
  • Undergo appropriate training
  • You may also be invited to sit on appointment panels or attend committee meetings etc.

You will be required to sign the governing body’s code of practice and to apply for a DBS enhanced disclosure.

What do you need to do next?

If you would like to know more about the role of a co-opted governor or the appointment process please send an email to

Yours sincerely  

Claire Poole

Chair of the governing board
