Parent Governor Election


Today the school is announcing an election for a parent governor. After four years of service to the school Mr Jonathan Cunningham has decided not to seek re-election due to his work commitments. The school thanks him for the work and support he has provided during his tenure. This therefore gives an opportunity for someone else to become more closely involved with the school.

The Governing Body has a responsibility to inform parents of any existing skills or knowledge that we would particularly welcome.

Mr Cunningham’s departure creates a need for someone to take the lead governor role for the very important area of SAFEGUARDING involving child protection, Looked After Children and the Government’s PREVENT strategy. It is anticipated that the new governor would also be a member of the Finance Committee. In addition, all governors are encouraged to take an interest in general school and governance issues. The Governing Body would therefore particularly welcome the election of someone with prior knowledge or experience of Safeguarding. Any background in, or knowledge of, finance/banking or wider school and governance issues would be a bonus.

Please contact Mrs Sharpe if you would like any further information or governors can be contacted directly via

Best wishes, Terry Wells, Chair of Governing Body
