Local governor positions

We are looking for individuals to join our local governing body who have the time, energy and commitment to make a difference to the lives of children and young people.

Being a Local Governor is a rewarding and effective way of making a voluntary contribution to your community and to the lives of children and young people within it. Local Governors live or work in the community served by one of our schools and have a keen interest in the school's success.

We particularly welcome local businesspeople and individuals with skills or experience in areas such as educational standards, safeguarding, human resources, health & safety and marketing.

Selection is based on the completion of an application form and skills audit, meeting the Chair of Local Governors and the Headteacher, and a short interview with the school's Education Director.

What does it involve?

As a Local Governor, you would be expected to commit to at least one meeting per term, usually from 6pm to 8pm, attend relevant training and occasionally complete a visit during the school day. Teamwork, enthusiasm and the ability to ask questions, listen and learn also play a big part.

Interested?

Please contact the Clerk to Local Governors via admin@gladpark.anthemtrust.uk in the first instance, or complete the application form below and email it to us via the same address.
