OPPORTUNITY TO BE A GOVERNOR
What are we looking for?
Our school governing body is made up of co-opted, parent, staff, local authority and associate governors. Our governors may come to us through a variety of routes and with a range of different backgrounds, skills and experiences, but they are all volunteers who work together for the benefit of the school and are the link between the school and the community it serves. We would be delighted to hear from anyone who has:
- An interest in the performance of the school
- A desire to contribute to and represent the community
- An open and enquiring mind
- The ability to look at issues objectively
- The confidence to ask questions and join in debate
- A willingness to listen and make informed judgements
- The ability to work well with others
If you match the above description, you may be the very person to become a governor at Edgbarrow School. Everyone has something to offer and we want people from as many backgrounds, skill sets and with a wide range of interests as possible. Below please find the job description for more details.
Being a governor can be enjoyable, stimulating and rewarding. Please don’t be put off by thinking that you have to have specialist expertise or knowledge. Enthusiasm and interest are much more important to start with and there is training and support available to help you throughout the four years term of office. You will be joining a long established Governing Body and will be supported by fellow governors with many years combined experience.
