We currently have two Foundation Governor vacancies. Foundation Governors have a particular responsibility within Church Schools to preserve and develop the Christian character and ethos of the school. In most cases the PCC is responsible for finding and nominating Foundation Governors for its parish school(s).
Foundation Governors are normally practising Christians, but as a school governor, a Foundation Governor is more than a Church representative. They are a full governor with an equal share of the responsibility for things such as: supporting the school; developing the school improvement plan; making budgetary decisions; holding the headteacher to account; and monitoring the implementation of school policies. It is necessary for all governors to have skills which can support these responsibilities and therefore important that the PCC takes this into account.
If you would like to apply, please e-mail Michelle Pennycott, Clerk to governors firstname.lastname@example.org
Our local board is supported by 3 sub committees, Premises, Teaching, Learning & Assessment and Staffing and Finance. This term Premises committee have produced a newsletter to summarise their involvement in supporting the school this year. Click here to read it.
Minutes of Local Board meetings are available from the school office on request. These include attendance at meetings.
