Parent Governor and 2 Co-Opted Governors

St Giles School currently has vacancies for a Parent Governor and 2 Co-Opted Governors on it's Full Governing Body.


The Governing Body, with the Executive Headteacher, has overall responsibility for the running of the school. Governing bodies have three core strategic functions:


  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
  • Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.


No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the school and be prepared to play an active part in the Governing Body’s work. Training is available for all Governors and the Governing Body has an expectation that those new to being a governor, attend free induction training.


The ' Qualification and Disqualification to Serve as a School Governor ' information sheet summarises the circumstances under which someone cannot serve as a Governor. In addition, parents/carers who have paid employment in the school for 500 or more hours per academic year or who are elected members of the Local Authority, are not eligible to stand in these elections. Parent Governor nominations must be from parents or carers with children at the school on the day that nominations close.


If you are interested in becoming a Governor, please email marking it for the attention of Sofia Orme, Executive Business Manager / Clerk to Governors.
