We currently have a vacancy for a parent governor which we would like to fill as soon as possible. Parent governors are elected by and from the parents of children currently attending our school. They serve a four-year term of office and bring a very important and valued perspective to the work of the governing body.
The governing body has a vital role to play in making sure every child receives the best possible education. This is achieved by ensuring that governors have the necessary skills and commitment to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school. The particular skills that governing bodies need will vary and will include personal qualities and capabilities, such as the ability and willingness to learn and work as part of a team. It is expected that governors will make use of the various training opportunities available to them and play a full part in the work of the governing body.
If you believe this could be a role for you then we encourage you to contact our Chair, Caroline Martin, using the details below.
The governance structure at The Meadow Community Primary School consists of the Local Governing Body which in turn reports to the Board of Trustees of Symphony Learning Trust.
The Full Governing Body meets 6 times per year, usually on a Wednesday evening, starting at 6pm and lasting for approximately 2.5 hours. The dates for these meetings are agreed for the year at the first meeting of the Autumn Term. Occasionally, extra meetings will be required. There may also be Governor Panels as required.
Occasionally, small groups of governors will meet to scrutinise specific areas of school and business management.
