PARENT GOVERNOR ELECTION(S)

Dear Parent /Carer

 

A vacancy for a parent governor on our governing body has arisen and I am writing to invite nominations to fill the vacancy. Parent governors play an important role as members of the governing body, which is responsible for promoting high standards of educational achievement.

The term of office for parent governors as determined by the governing body is 4 years and training is available for all governors.

If you would like to stand for election please write a letter of application and a CV; for the attention of:  Clerk to the Governors no later than 13 October 2017. Letters to be sent to the school office.

Nominations must be from parents or carers with children at the school on the day that nominations close. Parents/carers putting their names forward are invited to provide some brief biographical details limited to not more than 200 words suitable for inclusion in the ballot paper.

Parents/carers who have paid employment in the school or who are elected members of the Local Authority are not eligible to stand in these elections and anyone standing for election must certify that he/she is not disqualified for any reason.

If there are more nominations than vacancies the election will be by secret ballot. If that is necessary, voting papers will be sent to all parents together with details of the ballot procedure.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mrs Comber

Clerk to the Governors
