Parent Governors


There are vacancies for Parent Governors on the School’s Governing Board.  If you would like to stand for election please read information sheets which can be downloaded below and complete and return the attached nomination form to the school office by end of school day on Monday 8th January 2024.  Another parent of a child at the school must sign the form in support of your nomination.

All newly elected/appointed governors must hold an enhanced criminal record certificate.  The Governing Board must apply for such a certificate within 21 days of election/appointment of a new governor. 

Check that you are eligible for appointment as a School Governor by reading the Declaration of Eligibility Section.

The Declaration of Eligibility form requires a signature from you in Section A.  By signing the form you agree that you have read the qualifications and disqualifications, and you declare that you are qualified for appointment and that none of the statutory disqualifications apply to you.  Section C is for verifying proof of identity.  Only the statutory disqualifications would automatically exclude you from becoming a Governor.  Minor offences, not listed on the form, may not necessarily affect your eligibility to become a school Governor.

If you would like more information about being a Parent Governor or are uncertain whether you are eligible, please contact Ben Mawbey (Clerk to Governors) -   email Ben Mawbey
