Governors usually serve a 4 year term of office. From time to time, vacancies occur for Parent Governors on the governing body.

However, should you wish to become a governor for any other school, you should contact the Governor Services department of the local authority. Details of who to contact can be provided at the School Office.
Why should I consider becoming a Governor?
Education is one of the most important services that we can provide to our community. Our aim is to equip children with the skills and knowledge they need to become effective members of society as well as to enjoy life to the full. By becoming a Governor, you will be able to play an active role in influencing how the school can best serve the local community and, in particular, the children who live there.
