At Bolshaw Primary School we are looking for a co-opted governor to join our governing body. As a governor you will be a volunteer who makes a vital contribution to the success of the school.
School governors have three main roles.
- Governors ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
- Governors hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and the effective and efficient performance management of staff.
- Governors oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.
This role may be particularly of interest if you have skills in finance or accounting, human resources, data or education, but we invite applications from anyone who is interested in helping the school be the best it can be. Full training is available and governors are encouraged to attend regular training sessions, either in person or online.
We are looking for someone who can attend approximately six full governing body meetings per year and around six committee meetings per year.
You must be 18 or over to apply and all governors must have Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. If you would like to find out more please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
