Parent Governor Elections

8th January 2016

Dear Parents/Guardians

We are currently seeking to elect 3 parent governors at this College.  We are fortunate, on this occasion, to have four parents who wish to offer their services in this important role.

Any parent or legal guardian of a registered pupil at the school may stand for election as a parent governor or vote in an election for parent governors.  In accordance with the Children Act 1989, "Parent" in relation to any child or young person, includes a Guardian and every person who has parental responsibility for a child or young person.

Attached are details of the conduct of the election, brief “pen pictures” of each candidate which may help to inform your choices and a ballot paper(s).

If you are in any doubt as to your qualification to vote, the Principal should be consulted.  Please note that no person may serve on more than two governing bodies.

In line with safeguarding practices all school governor appointments will be subject to security clearance.

The ballot paper must be returned no later than Monday 25th January 2016.

Yours sincerely

GEOFF THOMPSON
Chairman of Governors
