Trinity High School

Parent Governors Required

14 September 2017


There is a vacancy for two parent governors, with effect from 3 October 2017, on the school’s governing body.  The term of office is four years.  The governing body plays a significant part in the development and management of the school and, as such, parent governors play an important role as members of the governing body helping to form policy, set priorities and manage the budget.

I am therefore writing to invite you either to nominate yourself or to nominate a parent to fill the vacancy.  A nomination form is enclosed (additional forms are available from the school office).  If you would like to nominate someone please return the completed form to the school by Friday 29 September 2017 (12.00noon).

The person nominated must be a parent of a registered pupil at the school on 3 October 2017 (start of term of office).  Please note that you are not eligible to be a parent governor if you are:

  1. an elected member of the Local Authority
  2. paid to work at the school for more than 500 hours in any twelve month period.

No parent may propose and/or second more nominations than there are vacancies.  Parents being nominated are invited to give on the nomination form some brief biographical details suitable for inclusion in the voting paper.

Under the terms of the School Governance (Constitution) (England) Regulations 2007, there are certain circumstances whereby individuals are disqualified from holding office and those are detailed below.  If the number of nominations received is the same as, or fewer than, the number of vacancies to be filled then those nominated will be elected unopposed.  If all the vacancies are not filled in this way the governing body will have the opportunity to appoint parent governors to the vacancy/vacancies.

If there are more nominations than vacancies the election will be by ballot.  If that is necessary voting papers will be sent to you together with details about the ballot procedure.

Yours sincerely

Ms E Stewart

Clerk to the Governors
