Parent Governor Vacancy

The governing body of Y Pant Comprehensive School has a vacancy for a parent governor and is looking for parents who are interested in this role.  A parent governor is a person with parental responsibility for a pupil attending the school.

The role of governor is an important one, as governing bodies are responsible for undertaking a variety of functions connected with the effective running of the school, including curriculum, budgeting and staffing matters.  You will be supported in these duties by other experienced members of the governing body, the headteacher and the Governor Support Officer. 

The Authority will provide relevant support and information.  Training is provided free of charge.  New governors are encouraged to undertake the foundation course, held at local venues, within the first year of appointment. 

The governing body works together as a group attending a minimum of three meetings per year.  As a parent governor, you will normally hold office for a period of four years, even if your child leaves the school during this time.  However, written resignations may be submitted at any time.

Becoming a governor is subject to certain regulations. Before completing the nomination form, please check that you are eligible by reading the criteria listed on the back page.  The school’s Clerk to the Governing Body will acknowledge your nomination form in due course. 

The Governing Body values your interest.  We would welcome the opportunity to answer any queries you may have, about becoming a governor, by telephone, e-mail or face-to-face at school.

Please see the attached document for more details and a nomination form.
