Currently we have one vacancy for a Co-opted Governor


At St Andrew's CE Junior School we are looking for a co-opted governor to join our governing body. As a governor you will be a volunteer who makes a vital contribution to the success of the school.

School governors have three main roles.

  1. Governors ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction.
    The governing body helps to set long-terms plans for the school, decide where improvements need to be made and how to make them.
  2. Governors hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and the effective and efficient performance management of staff.
    The governing body looks at the quality of education being offered and ensures the head is doing everything possible to improve results.
  3. Governors oversee the financial performance of the school and make sure its money is well spent.
    Governors examine budgets and spending proposals to monitor whether the school is getting value for money and ensure the money is spent in the right areas.

This role may be particularly of interest if you have skills in finance/accounting, human resources, data or education but we invite applications from anyone who is interested in helping the school be the best it can be. Full training is available and governors are encouraged to attend regular training sessions, either in person or online.

We are looking for someone who can attend approximately six full governing body meetings per year. Meetings are held in school, usually on Tuesday evenings from around 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Governors also spend time in school during the day (around two visits per term).

You must be 18 or over to apply and all governors must have Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks. If you would like to find out more please email Liz Powell, for an application form.


If you are interested in this position or becoming a governor in the future, please contact the school 's Governing Board Clerk, Mrs E. Powell, for further information (tel. 01457 852328 or email
