The Compass Academy

Parent Governor

Would you like to be a Governor of your child’s academy? As you may know, all schools and academies have places for Parent Governors on their Governing Committees. We currently have a vacancy for one of these positions at our academy and an election is to be held soon to fill the place.

It is a chance for you as a parent to have an influence over the education the academy provides for all its children. Governors make decisions about many aspects of the academy including the curriculum, staffing and the academy’s finances. 

Their role is vital to the education of the students so we would urge you to consider standing. In case you feel a bit daunted by the responsibilities, we will offer support to help you understand your role as a Governor.

If you are interested in applying, please complete the self nomination application form.
If you need any help then please let me know.
 
Best wishes
Jacqui Thompson
