Potential School Governors ………
this way please……
A Parent Governor vacancy has arisen at Charlton Mackrell Primary School and the Board of Governors are now looking to appoint a new governor in this role.
In addition, our Board currently has the capacity to co-opt up to a further two governors for short-term posts of 2 years.
All governors are volunteers and you will need some energy and commitment as the Governing Body is “accountable for ensuring high standards of achievement for all children and young people in their educational setting” [from A Guide for Prospective School Governors – Somerset Governor Services]. You do not have to be an education specialist or know how to run a school, we have an excellent Headteacher for that and she is ably supported by super staff.
A Parent Governor is defined as “a parent of a pupil registered at the school” but, if this proves not possible, then Governing Boards may appoint from a wider parental group that looks like this…,
the parent of a pupil registered at the school - OR
a parent of a former pupil registered at the school - OR
a parent of a child under, or of, compulsory school age.
A Co-opted Governor appointed will be someone who brings additional skills and experience to the Board and widens their range of expertise.
If you are interested in giving some of your time to be actively involved in further developing our school and maintaining a well-rounded and successful educational outcome for the children in our communities of the Charltons, Cary Fitzpaine and Kingsdon then
become our school governor.
