Parent Governor Vacancies

There are now three parent governor vacancies and I am seeking nominations on the governing body’s behalf.


The following is an extract from the procedures:


‘Parents are:


            (a) the natural parents of a pupil and/or

            (b) persons with parental responsibility for a pupil and/or

            (c) persons with care of a pupil.


Both parents in a case of separation or divorce are entitled to receive information about

parent governor elections at the school and to participate in those elections.  This also

applies to legal guardians and foster parents.’


Governors have an important and influential role to play in the life of our school and I hope you will consider being a candidate and using your vote in the event of an election. You may nominate another parent or yourself using a nomination form available from the school office, which has to be returned by 12 noon on 13 September 2013. I will acknowledge receipt.


In the event of there being more than one nomination, I will hold an election for which the timetable will be:


  1. Despatch of ballot papers: 16/17 September 2013


  1. Deadline for the return of ballot papers: 12 noon 23 September 2013


  1. Count: 3.30pm on 23 September 2013 in the hall; parents are invited to attend.


Please contact me if you require any further information about being a parent governor.


The successful candidate will be appointed for a four year term of office.
