Local governor opportunity

We are currently looking for governors, including a Chair, from our local community to join our school’s Local Governing Body. Our governors come from a range of backgrounds, skills and experience but all share a common interest of wanting the best education and outcomes for the children in our school.
 
We would be delighted to hear from anyone who is:
·         Interested in children’s education and the performance of the school
·         Has spare time and energy for the role
·         Is able to work well as part of a team
·         Has an enquiring mind and the confidence to ask questions and debate issues which affect
the school
·         Considers matters objectively and makes informed judgements
 
We are also looking to appoint a Chair of Governors who embodies these qualities and is able to
·         Lead the Governing Body by giving clear direction in effective governance
·         Help build an effective and collaborative team of governors
·         Work in partnership with the Headteacher to promote and maintain high standards of educational achievement
 
Governors gain a great deal from their work and time they contribute. It gives them a charitable opportunity to serve the local community, contribute to children’s education, and a chance to help realise their own potential by learning new skills and practise existing ones.
 
For more information please see the attached information sheet, or contact the Chair of Governors, Mrs Finch, via the school clerk, Mrs King, at office@fordcombe.kent.sch.uk
