Parent Governor Vacancy
5 December 2018 (by admin)
Nominations are open for a parent governor vacancy on our governing board.
There is currently a vacancy for a parent governor to serve on the governing body of our school.
We are very keen to encourage parents (or people with parental responsibility) of registered pupils to nominate themselves to fill his place
Parent governors are elected by and from other parents and are vital to our governing body. They share equally with other governors the responsibility for carrying out the governing body's wide range of responsibilities. Governors do not run the school day to day, as their role is at the strategic or policy-making level in the school. You do not have to be an expert on education to be a school governor, and we value the experience that all governors bring to the role.
If you join our governing body, you will serve for a four year term and you can continue to the end of the four years even if your child/children leave the school. Being a governor does take up time. There are currently three full governing body meetings each year, and governors usually serve on committees which meet once a term. You will need to set aside time to be able to be an effective governor: time to prepare for meetings, for visiting the school, undertaking training, etc.
To find out more about what being a governor at this school is like, please contact the school office who will arrange for you to meet with the head teacher and a current Millfield school governor who will be very willing to answer any questions.
If you would like to take the opportunity to put yourself forward as a candidate, you may only do so by completing an official nomination form (available by clicking the link below).
If you do wish to put yourself forward please complete and return the nomination form to the school office by 3.30pm on Friday 21st December. If it is necessary for there to be an election the school will contact you to let you know about the arrangements.
