We currently have a vacancy for Governor on our Governing Board at Hindhayes Infant School.
Schools need enthusiastic and committed people to become governors. Being a governor is not easy, but it is important, interesting and satisfying. Governors have the opportunity to express their own views, to listen to the views of others representing the school and its community and to influence pupils’ education for the better.
As a school governor, you would be part of a team (the governing body) with a range of important responsibilities. Governors work in partnership with school staff to shape the future of the school, to decide the key issues that will help staff to raise standards and to determine how the school will best spend its money to achieve these aims.
Governors don’t need qualifications, just the desire to make a positive contribution, show interest, and time – probably a couple of evenings a month – and the opportunity to visit the school ‘at work’ during the school day from time to time. You may find it useful to contact our Chair of Governors Danielle Hart via the school office email (Hindhayes@educ.somerset.gov.uk) for a further discussion.
Somerset Governor Services provide a comprehensive development programme of courses, workshops and other events for all governors – new and more experienced – at a range of locations across the County, on request, at our school and some topics are now available by distance/open learning.
If you are interested and want to know more there is a letter, we can send you with further information and a Nomination Form. It would be helpful if you could include some factual details about yourself and why you wish to become a governor (not more than 75 words please).
- If the number of candidates exceeds the current vacancy, an election process may be required.
The closing date to receive nominations is Thursday 3rd February 2022. Please feel free to contact Mike Sales in the school office on Msales@educ.somerset.gov.uk for more information.
