PARENT GOVERNOR ELECTION.
I am writing to inform you of two vacancies on the school governing body for Parent Governors. Details of the process to fill the vacancy follow.
THE NOMINATION OF PARENT AS CANDIDATES.
Each parent is to be given the opportunity of putting their name forward with a view to becoming a parent governor. If you want to submit a nomination on your behalf you should do so, in writing, to the Clerk to Governors. Letters of nomination must be countersigned by two sponsors, who must also be parents. A sponsor may sponsor only one candidate. The closing date for the receipt of nominations by the school is 12 noon on Monday 4 November 2019. Please note that incomplete nominations will not be accepted. Letters should be handed into the school office addressed to the Clerk to Governors.
In the event of there being no more than two nominations, the people nominated will automatically be elected, unopposed as parent governor.
THE ELECTION PROCEDURE.
If the school receives more than two nominations then an election by secret ballot will be held as soon as possible. Each parent at the time of the election will be entitled to vote.
In the event of an election, the Clerk will issue all parents with further details concerning the way in which the ballot is to be organised and supply the official ballot papers.
CANDIDATES' CONTRIBUTION TO THE ELECTION.
Candidates will be given the opportunity to write a short statement, which will be circulated to all parents.
Should candidates wish to seek support in any other way, this will be entirely their own responsibility.
Following an election, parents will be told the name of the successful candidates.
TERM OF OFFICE OF PARENT GOVERNORS.
An elected parent governor will normally hold office for a period of four years unless they decide to step down at an earlier date.
It is very important for the efficiency and effectiveness of schools that parent are encouraged to participate and take an interest in the election process whether as candidates or voters.
If you have any queries at this stage regarding the subject of parent governors, would you please contact the Head Teacher who will be pleased to try to help you. Yours sincerely,
Mrs. R Jewell
Clerk to Governors.
