How do I become a Governor?

Governors usually serve a 4 year term of office.  From time to time, vacancies occur for Parent Governors on the governing body.  Parents/Carers will be informed of such vacancies and nominations will be sought.  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.

A word from our Governors.........

I am married with two grown children who both attended Ince C of E Primary School. After running a successful family business for over thirty years, I now devote my time to foster care. Over the past fifteen years I have looked after over thirty children. I fully realise the importance of a good education and by being involved as a governor I hope to be able to support the next generation of school children.

Mrs Anne Hardy - Link Governor for Year 6/ SEND

I am Anne Hardy and I have been a governor at Ince CE Primary School for about 15 years. I am now a Foundation Governor representing Christ Church. Previously, when I worked at Ince, I was a staff governor.

 

I decided to stand as Foundation Governor when I retired from work because I wanted to continue to be involved in the life of the school and its pupils. As a governor I can continue to support the school in achieving the best for its pupils.

 

As a governor, I help to support the development of each child as they progress through the school. This not only includes a pupil’s academic development but also the social and emotional development of pupils.

The Christian ethos of the school is important to me. Along with a good education, it will ensure that our pupils are best equipped for secondary school and later life.

 

I see the role of governor as being both to support the Headteacher and senior management team whilst also challenging the outcomes achieved by the school. The governors ensure that the curriculum is taught and that the school is financially well run.
