WE ARE LOOKING FOR TWO CO-OPTED GOVERNORS TO JOIN OUR GOVERNING BOARD
If you are reading this, you could be just the person we are looking for to fill the post.
We are a proactive Governors team, working together with the strong management of Longman’s Hill rated, last November by Ofsted, as securely good.
We are particularly looking for governors to fill the following skills gaps as identified by the governing board:
Health & Safety
Buildings & maintenance
What do governors do?
The governors, together as a body, have a range of legal responsibilities, so being a governor is an important commitment and new governors should be willing to attend training to help them learn what is entailed.
If you feel this could be you please contact Linda Richardson, Clerk to Governors on 01757 706841
Once appointed, or elected, all governors must operate in the best interest of pupils, not as representatives to lobby on behalf of their constituency. Their task is to govern the school. This means focusing on the core functions of providing strategic leadership, holding the headteacher to account and making sure the school’s money is well spent. This is a demanding task for which all governors need to have, or develop, relevant and appropriate skills.
The governors’ work affects most aspects of the school’s work.
