Wanted - Governors for Charlbury School

At the end of this academic year (July), we have vacancies arising for people who are interested in the educational side of school and are willing to join us on the governing body and the standards and curriculum committee. An interest in special needs children and/or the delivering of the whole school curriculum would be an advantage but not essential.

The time commitment to the school is to 5 full governing body meetings per annum, held between 6-8pm on varying weekday evenings and to 5 Committee meetings which precede the full meetings. There are also termly monitoring visits in relation to the specific curriculum role assigned. Another 1-2 ad hoc meetings on matters arising or sub-committees are also not unusual. There is an amount of preparation time for such meetings and Governors are expected to come into school during term-time from time to time on visits in association with their role and to share the joy of the children.

Applications are welcome from parents and non-parents - we wish to maintain the correct balance on the Governing Body of all stakeholders of our community. I as Chair of Governors and the headteacher, Jane Holt, would be more than happy to discuss the position further with anyone who may be interested in taking up the role.

I can be contacted at or 07813 015034.
Kaye Leggett
Chair of Governors, Charlbury Primary School

By way of preamble....
Charlbury School has 13 members on the Governing Body (including Clerk and Associates) who are drawn from parents, staff members, the local authority and our community. We are diverse in age range, background and skills. Our role is to ensure high standards of achievement for all the children in the school by:
• Setting the school's vision, ethos and strategic direction;
• Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and the children; and
• Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
