HAVE YOU CONSIDERED BEING A SCHOOL GOVERNOR?

Are you interested in education and how schools work?  Would you like to make a positive difference to the life chances of children? Do you want to share your skills to make that difference? Would you enjoy being part of a team that provides critical challenge and support to the leadership team whose aim is driving up standards? 

If you can say ‘yes’ to all of these, consider investigating the role and putting yourself forward as a governor at Ely St John’s Community Primary School.

Being a Governor is a real commitment, but is a rewarding and enjoyable experience.  It requires regular attendance at formal meetings, which are usually held in the evening, although getting to know the school well requires some planned time in school during the day.

The best way to find out about the role and why people do it is to talk to someone who is already a Governor.  You may be surprised how many of your acquaintances have this experience. You could also contact Ms Liz Bassett, the head teacher, who will be only too happy to talk to you.

Schools look for a variety of experience and skills across their governing skills, eg finance, HR or business.  Training is important for all Governors and is readily available. We are currently looking for a co-opted Governor.  Selection is undertaken by our Governing Body. Does this role interest you?  Do you want to find out more information?

If so, take the first step and contact us on: office@elystjohns.cambs.sch.uk and express your interest.  We will be pleased to talk to you and we will send you all the information you need to make the decision whether to apply.  

Closing date for completed applications is Friday 25 January 2019.
