Governors meet and greet new members
Last night the governing body meet for the first time since Mrs Gascoigne became our headteacher. It was good to welcome her formally. We also welcomed Mrs O’Neill as our recently elected staff governor replacing Mrs Tilbury.
Following our appeal for more governors we received a number of interested parent enquiries. We therefore followed an application process based on an analysis of the skills required on our governing body. From that process we co-opted 2 parents, John Beaver and Nick Husssey and they were also welcomed last night. The remaining interested parents are standing for election to fill the parent governor vacancy.
This leaves the governing body with just one co-opted vacancy to fill. This needs to be filled by someone who is not a parent of a child at our school and can offer us legal or building expertise – please spread the word.
Thank you to all who responded so generously to offer their time and skills to our governing body – we were so encouraged by the positive response and are so pleased to have almost filled all our vacancies.
