The Governing Body currently has two vacancies for a parent governor.
The Role of Governors has become increasingly important. They must ensure that the requirements of the national curriculum are met, monitor standards, select staff, deal with budget matters and prepare the Annual Report to Parents. Governing Bodies are required to meet at least once a term and most meet after 4.00 p.m. or in the evening. The frequency and time of meetings is decided by the Governing Body.
Governors are elected for a four-year term of office, but Parents may continue to serve even if their child leaves the school during that time. Training is continually available for all Governors, at no cost to the individual. All Governors, new and experienced, are expected to take advantage of any courses arranged as it is vital to keep up to date with new ideas and legislation.
