Parent governor nominations

Dear Parents,


As you know, each school has its own governing body. The Governing Body of The Somerville Federation is composed of four parent governors, two staff governors (plus the headteacher), one governor appointed by the Local Authority and five co-opted governors. The term of office for all governors is four years.


School governors have important responsibilities for the overall conduct of the school and clearly the views of parents are of great value. All governors, including parent governors, are equally valued for their contribution to the life of the school.


Parent governors are elected by all of the parents who have children in the school / nursery and it is now necessary to elect one parent governor for our Governing Body to fill a current vacancy.


Attached is a nomination form. If you would like to nominate a candidate, please complete the attached form and return it to me not later than 3.30 pm on Friday 3rd November 2017. You must, of course, obtain the agreement of your nominee. If you return a form, the school will sign a receipt for it.


If there are more nominations than places on the governing body it will be necessary to hold an election. Candidates are invited to supply, in not more than 75 words, a note on their background and interests. In the event of an election being necessary, this information will be available to all parents who are eligible to vote.


Yours sincerely


Mr M. Forber

Executive Headteacher
