Parent Governor Vacancy

Hinchingbrooke School is seeking to appoint a Parent Governor to its Governing Body.

Hinchingbrooke School is an Academy Trust with 1900 students and is judged a good school by OFSTED. The role of the Governing Body is to:

• Provide strategic leadership

• Ensuring accountability of the Principal and Senior Leadership Team for educational performance

•Ensure effective use of resources to support learning

Governors should be able to focus on the bigger picture, capable of rapidly assimilating various forms of information and ask insightful questions of the leadership team. We would be particularly interested in people who have some of the following backgrounds:

• Health and Safety

• Legal

• Marketing and PR

• Construction and building maintenance

• Finance Parents and carers with other backgrounds are, of course, very welcome to apply, too.

The important thing is to have someone who is committed to helping the school move forward and to working collaboratively with other governors and senior leaders to bring this about. Governors are expected to attend around five evening meetings per year plus a one day visit to the school. Anyone interested in supporting the educational development of children in this area by joining the Governing Body, should in the first instance, apply to the clerk for an expression of interest form. The application window will close on Tuesday 13 October 2020.
