Parent Governor Vacancy (The Castle)

Parent Governor Vacancy (The Castle)

We are looking for a Castle Nursery School parent to join our Governing Body.

School governors play a key role in raising school standards and monitoring performance. They hold senior leadership to account and make important decisions covering issues such as policy making, site management, the school’s budget and the curriculum. Governors support the school in a variety of ways in addition to attending governing body meetings. It is a very important and worthwhile job! Anyone can become a governor; the only requirement is that you have the enthusiasm and desire to make a difference. Find out more about school governors at www.becomeagovernor.com

If you are interested please let Mrs Quinn know:
you can send a message on Class Dojo, email: kquinn@crigglestonecastle.wakefield.sch.uk
or speak in person.

Being a governor is an enormously challenging and rewarding opportunity. The personal benefits can be summarised as:
• A sense of satisfaction through knowing children will benefit from your efforts.
• The opportunity to develop new skills and to strengthen existing ones.
• The opportunity to work with people from a variety of social, cultural and religious backgrounds.
• The opportunity to gain understanding in key areas such as finance, personnel, and strategic planning.
• The opportunity to gain awareness of the education system as a whole.
