We are currently seeking four enthusiastic and committed volunteers to join our Governing Body as Co-opted Governors to help John Hunt Primary School flourish and to be part of shaping the future for our children.
Although Governors are volunteers excellent support and development opportunities will be provided through an induction process and a full programme of training both face-to-face and online to suit individual needs. There are opportunities to work alongside current governors and to take on responsibility for an area of the School Improvement Plan. We don’t expect you to be an expert in education and welcome governors from all walks of life to bring different perspectives and views. You just need to be committed to supporting our school community and the outcomes of our children.
We are particularly interested in hearing from anyone with interest, skills, experience or understanding in any of the following areas:
finance or accounting
education or school governance
local business links, marketing or advertising
Our Governing Body is responsible for:
ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction of the School
supporting and challenging the Headteacher;
monitoring the educational performance of the School and its pupils;
Full Governing Body usually meets three times a year plus attendance at a sub-committee meeting each term. However, it is not all meetings, Governors will have the opportunity to come into School to observe all areas of school life and are would invited to join in school celebrations such as performances and sports events, where they can see for themselves the value of their contribution.
If you are interested in meeting us and finding out more, please contact the School by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01636 682007 to arrange to call in for an informal chat over a cup of tea. We hope to hear from you soon.
