Parent Governor Election 2019

Closing date: Friday 22nd November 2019 3pm

Parent governors play a vital role on governing bodies, holding the unique position of having a parental viewpoint of the school. Through the children, they have a first-hand experience of the delivery of the curriculum, and how the school is perceived from the ‘consumers’ point of view. This enables parent governors to bring a different perspective to the strategic management of the school.

Parent governors are representative parents rather than representatives of parents. The role of a governor is largely a thinking and questioning role, not a doing role. In order to perform this role well, a governor is expected to:

  • get to know the school, including visiting the school occasionally during school hours and gaining a good understanding of the school’s strengths and weaknesses
  • attend induction training and regular relevant training and development events
  • attend meetings (full governing board meetings and committee meetings) and read all the papers before the meeting
  • act in the best interests of all the pupils of the school
  • behave in a professional manner, as set down in the governing board’s code of conduct, including acting in strict confidence

Effective parent governors will find working alongside the other members of the governing body both interesting and rewarding in that their efforts will ensure that the work of the governing body fulfils its duties to all children.
