Exciting Parent Governor Opportunity 

The Governors at Hatchell Wood Primary Academy are seeking to appoint one Parent Governor to join our forward-thinking leadership team

We currently have a Parent Governor vacancy to join our Local Governing Body.

Together with the Headteacher, Governors provide confident, strategic leadership and create accountability for educational and financial performance. Governors must ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction. They must hold leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff. They must oversee the financial performance of the school, making sure that the money is well spent. They make decisions collectively by consensus.

Governors should be mindful of their responsibilities under equality legislation, recognising and encouraging diversity and inclusion. A Governor should possess certain attributes and should be; committed, confident, curious, challenging, collaborative, constructively critical and creative.

This is a great opportunity to be part of a fantastic Leadership team.
