We currently have a vacancy for the post of Parent Governor at SELEfirst.
Our Governing Body consisting of 18 Governors. Members are made up from parents, staff, members of the community with particular knowledge and expertise, and local authority members. The standard term of office for all categories of governor is four years.
A full Governing Body meeting is held each term starting at 6.00pm. In between these a variety of sub-committees meet to discuss Curriculum, Finance, Staffing, School Development and Premises. Other than emergency meetings (which are rare) these also start at 6.00pm. At least two governors visit school each term to look in detail at an aspect of school development - usually a curriculum area.
Parents of registered pupils at this school are eligible to stand for election. Parent governors are elected by other parents at the school. Once nominations are received candidates will be asked to provide an outline of their details and interests to circulate to parents with ballot papers. Parents will then have two weeks to return ballot papers to school before votes are counted. If insufficient parents stand for election the governing body can appoint parent governors. To be elected you need to:
· Have a child registered at this school - Reception to Y4.
· Get together the names of two people willing to nominate you.
(Please note that nominators must also have a child registered at this school - Reception toY4.)
Complete the Nomination Slip below and return it to school no later than 4.00pm on Friday 5 December 2014.
We look forward to hearing from you.
