Our School: Parent Governor Election - Closing date: Monday 16th January

PARENT GOVERNOR ELECTION
I am writing to you to invite you to stand for election as a parent governor, or nominate another parent to do so. In our school we have provision for four parent governors and there is currently one vacancy.

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 the following skills or experiences:

 Project and premises management
 Finance
 HR responsibilities
 Special Educational Needs

Training is available for all governors and this governing body has an expectation that those new to being a governor attend free induction training.

The qualifications and disqualification guide summarises the circumstances under which someone cannot serve as a governor. In addition, parents/carers who have paid employment in the school for 500 or more hours per academic year or who are elected members of the Local Authority are not eligible to stand in these elections. Nominations must be from parents or carers with children at the school on the day that nominations close.

If you would like to stand for election please complete the enclosed nomination form and return it to the school no later than NOON on Monday 16th January 2017 You may also include a short personal statement to support your nomination, which should be no longer than 250 words. Self-nominations will be accepted, but if you are nominating another parent please seek their prior consent.

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 faithfully,

Mrs. Laura Morgan
Clerk to Governors 
Election Returning Officer
