Nomination Form for the Election of Parent Governor

There is a vacancy for a Parent Governor on our school’s Governing Body and I am writing to invite nominations to fill the vacancy.

Parent Governors play an important role as members of the Governing Body, which is responsible for directing the conduct of the school and for promoting high standards of educational achievement. The term of office for Parent Governors is four years. Details of the role of the Governing Body and Governor are to be found here. An induction and ongoing training and development are available to all Governors.

If you would like to stand for election, please complete below no later than Monday 15th May 2017.

Nominations must be from parents or carers with children at the school on the day that nominations close. Parents/carers putting their names forward are invited to provide some brief biographical details (limited to 200 words) suitable for inclusion in the ballot paper.

A Parent Governor must be a parent of a pupil at the Academy at the time of election/appointment. The eligibility criteria to serve as a Governor is documented at www.droylsdenacademy.com/force_download.cfm?id=2479. Anyone standing for election must certify that he/she is not disqualified for any reason.

If more than one nomination is received an election will be by secret ballot. If that is necessary, voting papers will be sent to all parents together with details of the ballot procedure.

Yours faithfully

Nils Elgar
Clerk to the Governing Body
