Would you like to be a school governor?


The Governing body has a vacancy for a co opted governor to sit on the Finance and Health and Safety Committees.


We are looking for someone with either a strong financial background or an interest in finance or Health and Safety.


As this is a co opted position interested people do not need to be a parent of a child at the school. 


As a member of the governing body you will contribute to the strategic aims of the school, particularly helping set and monitor the school budget and ensuring that it complies with statutory requirements. You will also be involved in a range of school matters, which can include recruitment, health and safety and curriculum. Governors also provide a strong link between the school and the local community, and an independent view to support the school on long term development and improvement.A full and comprehensive training program to support governors in the requirements of the role is provided through Hampshire County Council.


Committees  usually meet during or before the school day, so you would need to be available to attend. You will also need a strong commitment and enthusiastic and flexible approach.


If you have the time, commitment, enthusiasm and necessary skills to fulfil this challenging but rewarding role, please ask the school office for an application form and job description. 


If you would like to discuss any aspects of this role further, or would like to discuss your suitability, please contact me through the school office.
