Have you ever considered becoming a Governor of our school?

The Governing Body has a couple of vacancies for new Governors and invites people who may be interested to come along and learn more about what being a Governor entails.

The Governing Body is responsible for setting the strategic direction and policies of the school as well as for monitoring how the school performs. The current Board consists of sixteen Governors – six of these are parents of pupils.

All Governors offer a range of backgrounds and life experiences to assist the school in its decision making and to monitor the quality of what we do. The Board meets six times each year – though there are a range of smaller sub-committees which are responsible for aspects of the school’s operations.

The six sub-committees are Curriculum, Finance, Marketing, HR Training & Development, Estates and Maintenance and also Safeguarding. Much of the Board’s work is done at sub-committee level and all Governors are a member of at least one sub-committee.

Governors are also linked to one of the school’s academic curriculum groups to enable them to develop a greater understanding of what goes on in our classrooms.

Being a Governor is an interesting way of being involved in helping the school to develop, improve and raise the quality of our children’s education and progress.

If you are interested and would like to learn more please e-mail to express your interest to t.barker@gadshillschool.org.

We will arrange a briefing session for potential new Governors during the Summer term.
