The Governing Board currently has the following vacancies:
- Parent Governors
The Board will shortly be holding elections for the category of 'Parent Governor'. All 'parents' as defined in the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012, may stand as parent governor, providing they are not disqualified from holding office as a governor under Schedule 4 of the above named Regulations.
Full details will be circulated to all parents by the School at the start of the Autumn Term 2018-19.
The Board of governors having recently reconstituted are seeking new governors who have some or all of the following skills and experiences to enhance those of current Board members:
- Committed to improving the education and welfare for all pupils here at Prescot Primary
- Experience of being a governor/trustee in another school or being a board member in another sector
- Willing to devote time, enthusiasm and effort to the duties of and responsibilities of a governor/trustee
- Experience using data to interpret/evaluate performance and identify trends to target improvement
- Experience of HR policy and processes, including employment legislation, recruitment, performance management and pay
- A strong communicator and committed to building strong collaborative relationships
- Willing to reflect, listen and learn from a diversity of views, to receive and provide feedback and accept impartial advice
- A commitment to ongoing personal development and attendance at training
The above skills and experiences will not restrict any parent eligible to stand for election from doing so.
School Governors are volunteers and give their time, commitment and skills freely. Governors attend meetings in school which last approximately 2 hours in the evening and will require preparation by reading papers (see meeting schedule for frequency of meetings). Following an induction governors have access to high quality training to enable them to develop their skills and knowledge, much of which can be easily transferred to many employment situations. Being a School Governor is a recognised Public Service Role and as such entitles people to time off work. You should discuss this with your employer as it is the employers decision as to whether this is paid time off. The vast majority of employers do support this essential voluntary role, recognising the contribution it makes to the organisations Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
There is an expectation that on election you will be willing to:
- undertake appropriate induction training
- prepare for and attend all meetings regularly
- be an active member of committees as required
- be willing to undertake further training to develop your skills.
