Parent Governor Vacancy
Please see attached Parent Governor Vacancy Letter and Application Form
The Headteacher of Lewis Girls’ School has been asked to arrange an election for a Parent Governor.
The Role of Governors has become increasingly important. They must ensure that the requirements of the
national curriculum are met, establish standards of behavior, select staff, deal with budget matters and
prepare and present the Annual Report to Parents. Governing Bodies are required to meet at least once a
term and most meet in the evening. The frequency and time of meetings is decided by the Governing
Governors are elected for a four-year term of office, but Parents may continue to serve even if their child
leaves the school during that time. Training is continually available for all Governors, at no cost to the
individual. All Governors, new and experienced, are expected to take advantage of any courses arranged
as it is vital to keep up to date with new ideas and legislation.
A nomination form is enclosed to enable you to put your name forward for election.
