Parent Governor

Leytonstone School is holding an election for new parent governors to join the Governing Body.

The Governing Body is also able to co-opt members to strengthen its capabilities in specific areas.  With significant changes to the curriculum and examinations, school funding and academisation these are interesting times for schools.

If you would like to put your name forward for either the parent governor’s election or as a co-optee, please complete the reply slip attached and return it to the school as soon as possible and not later than 9th February 2018.  You might want to talk to me or one of the co-Chairs – Siobhan Walsh or Alan Jeffrey – about what the role entails. Please let me know if you would like me to facilitate this. We will be holding an informal information session on Friday 2nd February at 5 – 6 p.m. Both myself and some of our governing body will be there to explain a bit more about the role and answer any questions you may have. Please feel free to  pop along. All parents and carers welcome.

We are confident that amongst the many parents and carers of our students there are people who are both able and willing to join us.  In particular we would welcome approaches from people with a financial management, legal or educational background.

Please be advised that if there is more than 4 candidates, an election will need to be held but this is a straightforward process.  All you need to do is write a short paragraph (no more than 100 words) saying why you want to become a Parent Governor and what skills you could bring to the board; this will be sent to all parents with a voting paper.

Should there be fewer than 4 candidates those people who have applied to become a Parent Governors will automatically become a Parent Governor.

The role of the Governing Body is to provide the right balance of support and challenge to the leadership of a school in the best interests of its students.  We want to be sure that at Leytonstone, as existing governors come to the end of their term of office, our Governing Body has the knowledge, skills and commitment to do that over the months and years ahead.

All governor appointments are subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Baring Service check (DBS) check.

Please return this slip to the school before 9th February 2018
