Joining our Governing Board

We are looking for volunteers to join our lively, interested and experienced Governing Board.

We are looking for a volunteer who is interested in giving some of their time to be part of a team and who would like to help to improve and develop the education and lives of students with Special Educational Needs. You don’t need to have a connection to the school, or a background in education; although either can be an advantage.

Governors are a supportive team, who are able to listen, assimilate information, and take decisions. We work with the school, making sure the clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school are all threaded through life at Southbrook. As a team, we collate our knowledge and findings from focussed visits to the school to ensure we hold the Headteacher to account for the educational performance, oversight of the curriculum, but also have a duty of care to our Headteacher, who in turn is responsible for the staff and pupils. Governors are also responsible for the oversight of finance and ensuring money is spent well.

In return for your time, we offer a vast range of training opportunities (for free), this training will carry over skills into other areas of professional development. 

If you are interested in finding out more about joining our Board, please contact the Clerk to Governors via email jbrooks@southbrook.devon.sch.uk or by telephone on 01392 716900
