We currently have two vacancies for parent governors, which we need to fill as soon as possible.
Newtown C of E Primary School has a partnership with parents that undoubtedly brings great benefits to the children. One of the most significant ways you can help is to volunteer to be a parent governor.
The governing body's main tasks are:
- to ensure that the school has a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- to hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;
- to oversee the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
The governing body is aware of the views of parents and the local community. We feel sure that there are parents prepared to take on this important role and give their time and commitment to helping us to continue to improve the school's performance.
Training and support will be available to help you develop into the role. This will include in-house mentoring and support as well as access to external governor training.
If you feel you can help in this capacity please contact the office for an application form which will need to be completed and returned to the school by 12.00 noon on Friday 27th September 2019.
The guidelines giving full details about how vacancies are filled can be found on the school’s website. You should also look at the information for prospective governors on the Hampshire County Council website. You will find videos, e-learning and written information on the site and all of these will provide you with further details about the role.
Please note that for the protection of children all governor appointments are subject to an identity check, an enhanced DBS check and a 128 barring direction check for prohibition from management in schools.
If there are more applications than vacancies, we will hold an election.
