Parent Governor Vacancy
We currently have a vacancy for a parent governor on the Governing Board at the school. Parent governors are elected by other parents and support the Board in their strategic role, not the day to day running of the school. The role of a parent governor is not as a spokesperson for the views of parents; they are the same as all other governors on the Board, providing a 'parental viewpoint' ie representative parents rather than representative of parents.
You do not need to have a background in education, a range of work and life skills are valuable to bring to this role. You will need to be able to commit time to attend meetings at school and undertake training, and keep your knowledge up to date.
If you are interested in finding out more about what the role involves and the time commitment, please contact Mike Simmons, Chair of Governors, MSimmons@st-johns-trowbridge.wilts.sch.uk, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
