Starcross Primary School and Preschool are part of a multi-academy trust and are seeking governors to serve on our Local Academy Committee. (often called a local governing body). The responsibilities and levels of delegation given to this group are defined through a Scheme of Delegation; however, the accountability will always lie with the trustees at trust board level.
We have vacancies for members and a vacancy for a Chairman on our school’s local governing body and I am writing to invite applicants to fill this vacancy. Please think about becoming a governor, or encouraging others to volunteer. Governors are welcomed as valued members of the school team and play an important role; the governing body works together as a group, meeting half termly. Together they are responsible for the strategic direction of the school, promoting high standards of educational achievement and ensuring our resources are used to maximum impact. Life as a governor is interesting and varied and we feel sure that there are parents or local residents prepared to take on this important role and give their time and commitment to helping us to continue to improve the school’s performance.
Training and support will be available to help you develop into the role. This will include in-house mentoring and support as well as access to external governor training, those new to being a governor are expected to attend induction training.
The term of office for governors is 3 years. For further information about the role please get in touch with Nicky Davey, Clerk to Governors, who will be happy to help.
If you would like to be considered for a position, please complete and sign the attached form and return to the school office asap. If you wish you can include a few details about yourself and why you would like to become a governor (not exceeding 100 words). Yours sincerely Nicky Davey Clerk to the Local Academy Committee Clerk@starcross-primary.devon.sch.uk
