Langham Village School is a thriving village school in a beautiful part of the country. We strive to achieve a happy atmosphere and to provide a safe and caring environment where children can grow in confidence and be inspired to develop a lifelong love of learning.
Our school mission statement is: ‘Langham village school: a place for fun, creativity, friendship, ambition and discovery.’
We currently have 4 classes and 86 children, which enables children to be taught in small groups by a team of experienced, creative and dedicated staff.
Nominations/applications are invited for a non-parent governor, to join the Premises and Finance Committee within the governing body.
Governors play an important role within the school and work together to promote high educational standards, monitor performance and set the school’s vision and strategic direction. School governors are responsible for setting the school’s objectives and developing policies for achieving them. In addition, the governing body (and particularly the premises and finance committee) oversee the school’s budget and financial performance including expenditure and allocation of resources to ensure maximum impact.
Necessary governor attributes:
- Over the age of 18
- Good interpersonal skills
- Enthusiasm to improve effectiveness within the school and raise standards
- Robust IT and data analytical skills
- Experience working within a financial or legal setting or previous accounting or property management experience would be desirable
- Our parent governor positions are now full so this candidate must not be a current parent at the school
- Time and enthusiasm to participate as a volunteer
As a new governor, you would receive appropriate training and be expected to attend full governors meetings (about 6 per year) as well as committee meetings, which are usually in the evening. Governors are also required to carry out occasional monitoring within the school day.
The role provides an interesting and rewarding opportunity to become involved in the local community and have a direct impact on the operational aspects of the school. The governing body represents a creative and dynamic team, working to improve and maintain outcomes for staff and pupils.
