If you have answered ‘yes’ then please click on the button below, complete the short application form and return to [email protected] or send a hard copy: FAO Mr Alan Derry, Parent Governor Election at GBPS, c/o Southwold School Office, Holme Way, Bicester, Oxon, OX26 3UU by Monday 2nd July 2018.

The role of a Local Governing Body is an important one. The local governors monitor their school’s key performance indicators and act as a critical friend to the Principal and the Senior Leadership Team, providing challenge and support, as appropriate. Its role is to provide focused local governance for the school at a local level.

We are looking for two local parent governors who are keen to join us on our journey from the opening of our exciting new school to developing it year on year. We are looking to you to demonstrate a commitment to determine the school’s strengths and weaknesses and monitor progress. You will need to be able to work as a member of our team delivering the role as delegated by the Board of Trustees. We will support you with training and help you develop a sound knowledge of the Ofsted Framework as we progress through our exciting journey. You will need to be able to consider initiatives and outcomes in the best interests of the school and the White Horse Federation.

The White Horse Federation takes very seriously its responsibilities to safeguard children in our schools. The appointment process requires newly appointed local governors to undergo a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check within 3 weeks of appointment. Refusal to comply leads to disqualification as a local governor. We will also follow up your references and ask you to produce evidence of identity (e.g. a passport or photo driving license) prior to your first meeting.
