What is a Parent Governor?
Parent governors are an important part of our Governing Body. It is an interesting and rewarding role and a wonderful opportunity to have a voice in your child’s education. We welcome and support all new parent governors. Parent governors are elected by parents from our school community as and when vacancies occur. We will advertise when a vacancy occurs; in order to stand for election prospective parent governors need to be nominated by another parent.
