Parent Governor Elections

Dear Parent/Guardian,

A vacancy has arisen for a parent governor on the School’s Governing Body and I am writing to invite nominations for the position.

All parents and guardians of children who attend the school (except for those who are
elected members of the local education authority or are paid to work at the school for more
than 500 hours in a twelve month period) are eligible to stand for election as a parent
governor. All parents and guardians of children who attend the school are eligible to vote in
the election.

Parent governors are very important in the life of the school and there is a range of support
available, including free induction training. If you would like further information about the
role of a governor and of the amount of time involved in being a governor please phone the
Governor Development Service on tel: 020 7525 5313.

I very much hope you will consider putting your name forward for the position of parent
governor and I am enclosing a nomination form for this purpose. Please return completed
forms to me by noon on Friday 27th September 2019.

Yours sincerely
Lynne Cooper
Executive Head
