Parent Governor

Posted on: 20/04/2022

GOVERNING BODY OF PHILIP SOUTHCOTE SCHOOL

We are seeking nominations for parent/carers to stand for election as a parent governor of Philip Southcote School.

If you are interested to nominate yourself as a parent governor, then please email Mary Rome at mary.rome@philip-southcote.surrey.sch.uk or call 01932 562326 before the deadline of 12 noon on Friday 27th May 2022.

Following your interest, we will send you a nomination form.  Each person must be proposed and seconded by parents of registered pupils presently attending the school.  The nominee must also be a parent and signify his or her willingness to stand for appointment or election.

Parent governors are elected as directed by Schedule 1, Regulation 6 of The School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2012. Nominations for parent governor vacancies are made by parents/carers of pupils registered at the school.  Should there be more nominations than vacancies a secret ballot will be held.  Parents/carers of registered pupils attending the school may offer themselves for election.  Parent governors can serve for a term of up to four years irrespective of how long their child remains as a registered pupil of the school.

The governing body has a vital role to play and relies on a team approach with each individual contributing a range of skills and experience.  We are particularly keen to elect a parent governor with expertise in school life and/or a willingness to undertake training to develop skills in this area.

Please note - a person is disqualified from election or appointment as a parent governor of a school if they are an elected member of the LA or if they work at the school for more than 500 hours (i.e for more than one-third of the hours of a full-time equivalent) in a school year (at the time of election or appointment).

Parent/Carers nominated to stand for election may enclose with their nomination forms a short personal statement about themselves, of not more than 100 words.  Statements will be circulated to parents should a ballot prove necessary.  If the number of nominations received is less than the number of vacancies, all those nominated will be appointed without a ballot.  If the number of candidates exceeds the number of vacancies a secret ballot will be held and candidates may request an opportunity to address a meeting of parents if they wish.

Please email Mary Rome at mary.rome@philip-southcote.surrey.sch.uk or call 01932 562326 before the deadline of 12 noon on Friday 27th May 2022.

Yours sincerely,

MR Signature
