Governor Vacancy
by Mrs E Severn (Staff) - Wednesday, 9 November 2016, 3:49 PM

We are looking to recruit new governors for all three governing bodies within our collaboration of Holgate, Jeffries and Sutton Road Primary Schools.


We are seeking people with the skills and enthusiasm to engage in the improvement work of the collaboration and ensure leaders are achieving the best outcomes possible for our children. Working under the leadership of an energetic and experienced Chair, our governing bodies meet a minimum of three times per year, once each school term. Combined Committees and smaller groups of governors also meet as working parties once or twice per school term. A governor’s term of office is normally four years, but a governor can resign at any time.


All you need is a keen mind and a desire to ask challenging questions in the interest of improving the life chances of children. A programme of induction, training and support is provided by the schools as well as through Local Authority Governor Services.


If you are, or know someone who is, interested in volunteering as a school governor for one of the schools and would like to find out more, please contact Tracy Mullaney by email tmullaney@suttonroad.org or call:


Holgate Primary & Nursery School on 0115 956 8281


Jeffries Primary School on 01623 460274


Sutton Road Primary School & Nursery on 01623 455920


Alternatively, submit a letter expressing your interest which includes brief details of your experience and how you intend to make a positive contribution to school governance.


Please submit this to:

There is no closing date for this opportunity, as we always want to have an open door to good and talented governors.
