Parent Governor Vacancies

Please click here to view a letter from our Chair of Governors and a nomination form

We invite you to stand for election as a parent local governing committee member, or nominate another parent to do so. In our school we have provision for two parent local governing committee members and there are currently two vacancies.

The local governing body, with the Head of School, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. The board of governors have three core strategic functions:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

Holding the Head of School to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and

Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

The local governing committee is delegated certain functions by the Nova Education Trust Board of Directors and these responsibilities are outlined in the trust Governance Scheme of Delegation & Structure available for download at:

No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the local governing committee’s work. However, we would particularly welcome nominations from parents with knowledge of finance. Training is available for all local governors and this board of governors has an expectation that those new to being a local governing committee member, attend induction training.

We have also been asked to share the flyer above with information about volunteering for the Nova Education Trust governance structures.
