Parent Governor Vacancy

Parent Governor Vacancy Letter


Every school has a Governing Body with Governors who work as a team. Governors are responsible to parents, those who fund and the community for making sure the school provides a good quality education.

Governors promote high standards of educational achievement. They do this together with the Headteacher, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the school. Governing bodies include:

  • Parents elected by other parents with children at the school
  • The Headteacher, if the Headteacher chooses to be
  • Teachers elected by other teachers
  • Non-teaching staff elected by other non-teaching staff
  • People appointed by the Local Authority
  • People chosen by Governors from the local community
  • In church and some other types of school, people appointed by the church or foundation Governing bodies may also include representatives from the church, charitable trust or business interests.
