The Role of a Parent Governor


Co-opted governors are appointed by the governing body. In particular, the governing body is looking for people with professional experience of Business, Finance, HR Management, Education and Law.

We are also looking for anyone who has 

  • An interest in the performance of the school.
  • A desire to contribute to and represent the community.
  • An open and enquiring mind.
  • The ability to look at issues objectively.
  • The confidence to ask questions and join in debate.
  • A willingness to listen and make informed judgements.
  • The ability to work well with others.
  • Time to spare and commitment to the role about 2 hours a month.

Co-opted governors do not have to be parents at the school and we welcome interest from members of the local and wider community.
