Parent Governor Vacancy


We have one vacancy for a parent governor which we need to fill as soon as possible. Anstey Junior School has always aimed for a partnership with parents which undoubtedly brings great benefits to the children. One of the most significant ways you can help in promoting this aim is to volunteer to be a parent governor. The governing body's main tasks are:

 to ensure that the school has a clear vision, ethos and strategic direction;

 to hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;

 to oversee the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.


Parent governors are welcomed as valued members of the team and play a vital role in ensuring that the governing body is aware of the views of parents and the local community. We feel sure that there are parents prepared to take on this important role and give their time and commitment to helping us to continue to improve the school's performance. Training and support will be available to help you develop into the role. This will include in-house mentoring and support as well as access to external governor training. If you feel you can help in this capacity, please contact the office for an application form which will need to be completed and returned to the school by 12 noon on Thursday 19th November 2020.


If there are more applications than vacancies, we will hold an election and parents will be sent a voting paper. If you are interested in joining our governing body and would like to find out more, please email our Chair of Governors, Brendan Roberts on the following email address
