Election of Parent Governor

Dear Parent/Carer,


I am writing to you to invite you to stand for election as a parent governor, or nominate another parent to do so. In our school we have provision for four parent governors and there are currently two vacancies.

The governing board, with the headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. Governing boards have three core strategic functions:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the work of the governing board. However, we would particularly welcome nominations from parents with the following skills – finance, leadership, teaching and learning. Training is available for all governors and this governing board has an expectation that those new to governance attend free induction training.

The below sheet summarises the circumstances under which someone cannot serve as a governor. In addition, parents/carers who have paid employment in the school for 500 or more hours per academic year or who are elected members of the Local Authority are not eligible to stand in these elections. Nominations must be from parents or carers with children at the school on the day that nominations close.

If you would like to stand for election please complete the below nomination form and return it to the school no later than Wednesday 18th September 2019 at noon. You may also include a short personal statement to support your nomination, which should be no longer than 250 words. Self-nominations will be accepted, but if you are nominating another parent please seek their prior consent.

If there are more nominations than vacancies the election will be by secret ballot. If that is necessary, voting papers will be sent to all parents together with details of the ballot procedure.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs J. Lowe

Headteacher (Returning Officer)

*“Parent” means a person with parental responsibility for, or carer of, a registered pupil at the school at the time of election.

Other top performers achieving NINE grade 7s and above were Reece Robson, Hannah James, Jacob Lyndon, Eleanor White, Ethan Wilson, Judy Al-Jedai, Sarah Sadimlija-Miller & Nafisa Hamouda-Asgill.

Headteacher, Jo Lowe commented,

“I am delighted that these results prove that our students were able to rise up to and meet the challenges of the reformed more challenging GCSE qualifications. Students should be proud of their achievements which reflect their hard work and commitment. We wish the Leavers 2019 well as they leave us and move on to college, sixth form and employment/training, built on the foundations that The Kingsway School has given them for a fantastic future.”
