Wanted – New Foundation Governors – read more

Baydon St Nicholas Primary School has a very active governing body made up of members of staff, clergy, members of the Church community and parents. A governor’s term of office lasts 4 years and most are recruited through word of mouth and/or recommendation and each has a different set of skills and experiences that make up a well-rounded Governing committee.
Due to the natural turnover of office, we are currently looking to recruit 3 Foundation Governors who are appointed by the Church authorities and have a specific responsibility in terms of monitoring and developing the Christian distinctiveness of our Church school. We would be delighted to hear from anyone who is a regular Church goer and has:-
• an interest in the school;
• a desire to contribute to the community;
• the ability to look at issues objectively;
• the confidence to ask questions and debate answers;
• a willingness to listen and make informed judgements;
• the ability to work well with others;
• time to spare.
