Are you enthusiastic about education?
Do you have some time to spare?
If so, then you may be just the person we need!
We are looking for committed people to join Muscliff Primary School Governing Board as
We have a number of vacancies in the co-opted governor category and would welcome applications from people with experience in:
- Finance (Accountant, Finance Manager etc)
- Human Resources
- Legal (Paralegal, Solicitor etc)
- Health and Safety (H&S officer, union rep etc)
- Capital projects management
The Governing Board of our school is made up of parents, staff, community and co-opted governors.
The Governing Board operates at a strategic level and is not involved in the day-to-day running of the school. We are responsible for both the conduct of the school and for the promotion of high standards. We carry out this role by setting the vision for the school, ensuring that the school works efficiently and effectively towards achieving its vision, and that the school provides a high quality education for its pupils. This is done by building a thorough knowledge of the school and its community, by both supporting and constructively challenging the school, and by ensuring accountability and compliance.
Governors need not be experts in the field of education. What they do need is an interest in the school and in the welfare of its pupils, together with the time and willingness to get involved. The skills you have can be very useful to the Governing Board.
Governors also need ‘soft skills’ – the ability to be able to build relationships with a range of people, to be able to work as part of a team, to be able to question, and to make connections between different types of information.
If you would like to find out more about how you can contribute to governance at our school, or have any questions about anything above, then please contact the school office which will then arrange for a governor to contact you. 01202 549654
