Richard Lander School - Parent Governor Vacancy

Are you interested in becoming a School Governor? 

We have a vacancy on our Governing Body for a Parent Governor

The Governing Body, with the Headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. Governing bodies have three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the governing body’s work. However, we would particularly welcome nominations from parents with a background in finance. 

Please see the Governors section where you will find further information and a nomination form. The closing date for nominations is NOON on Friday 13th November 2020.
