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

Volunteers don't have to have a connection to the school or a background in education. In fact, it is better for us if you don’t. Co-opted governors have the skills required to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school. We would like someone who knows the local community. If you have a background in finance or business even better, but this is not essential.

School Governors are there to ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and overseeing the financial performance of the school, making sure its money is well spent. Governors are expected to adhere to the seven principles of public life, which are selflessnessintegrityobjectivityaccountabilityopenness,honesty, and leadership.

We would love to have a chat with you about the role. Please contact the Clerk to Governors via email admin@southbrook.devon.sch.uk or by telephone on 01392 716900
