Vacancy: Parent/Carer Governor

Job Title: 
Parent/Carer Governor

Governor Vacancy

Due to a need to address a number of technical issues with regard to making arrangements for the online voting process, we have decided to extend the deadline previously notified as 29 March for submission of responses, to 5 April. 



The governing body is responsible for, amongst other duties, promoting high standards of educational achievement. With this in mind, we want to take this opportunity to draw your attention to a vacancy recently arisen, which is to serve in a voluntary capacity as a parent governor member of our board.

The role of the parent governor offers an opportunity to make a real contribution to the strategic leadership of the school. Although this can be a demanding and delicate role, there is ample support and training available, in the first instance from the Governor Support Team at Brighton & Hove City Council. Co-opted governors will find working alongside the other members of the board, including the clerk, both interesting and rewarding. Your efforts will ensure that the work of the governing body fulfils its duties to all pupils at the school.

If you are interested in applying, please complete a parent governor nomination form and return it to the Clerk to Governors before the closing date to: [email protected].

Closing Date: 11th March 2019

CVs alone will not be considered.

Blatchington Mill School is committed to safeguarding our students; we expect all staff and volunteers to support this commitment. Criminal record checks will be carried out and a full, enhanced DBS clearance is required for all positions.

Applications are encouraged from black and ethnic minority candidates, as these groups are under-represented on the governing body.

(Race Relations Act sections 35-38 apply).

How to Apply

Unless otherwise stated, please return your completed application form by noon on the closing date to:

Clerk to Governors,
