New governor needed at Brixington

A new community governor is needed at Brixington Primary School

BRIXINGTON Primary School is seeking a new community governor to join its 15-strong governing body.

The role of the body is strategic and closely involved in deciding the values, visions and aims of the school; drafting statutory policies, creating its improvement plan as well as setting and monitoring the budget.

Community governors represent the different groups within the community that have an interest in the school.

Jon Galling, head teacher, said: “We are fortunate to have a strong and committed governing body.

“A vacancy has recently come up for a community governor, which means we are now looking for someone who lives or works in the Brixington community and is willing to volunteer their time to support our vision of being ‘a great place to be’.”

The post is voluntary for a four-year term and would require regular attendance at meetings at the school.
