Could you help support your school?
Published on 17/01/18
Nominations are open for parents governors at Hethersett Academy.
The governing body reports to the Inspiration Trust board and acts as a critical friend to the
school. Duties include overseeing admissions, exclusions, and complaints; monitoring academic standards; representing the views of the local community; authorising certain spending; certain staffing issues; and overseeing safeguarding procedures.
The governing body meets formally at least four times a year, but individual governors may take on special responsibilities and we encourage all governors to take an active role in school life.
No special qualifications are needed but experience in education, human resources, finance,
or governance may be helpful. Training is available for all new governors, and the Inspiration
Trust provides regular updates and professional support on relevant issues.
Interested parents should visit www.inspirationtrust.org/lgbs for more details, and to complete a nomination form.
Nominations close on Friday, February 2, 2018.
