Governor Vacancies

We currently have some vacancies on the governing body of The Tynings School. Is is something you’d be interested in? If so, please read on.

School Governors represent the largest volunteer force in the country. Devolved local management of schools over recent years has influenced both the day-to-day managerial function of head teachers and the more strategic role of governing bodies. One consequence of this development is that Governors recruited from the business community are highly valued for the skills, experience and objectivity they bring to decision-making.

Governors are lay people who have an interest in the role of schools in society and wish to make a positive contribution to their communities. Governors tend to have enquiring minds, the ability to contribute to debate and planning and the confidence to ask the questions that need to be asked. A governing body’s overriding responsibility is to promote continuous improvement in the performance of the school. This requires effective strategic management involving the establishment of a development plan, the setting of challenging but achievable targets and the interpretation of management information to accurately assess progress and determine appropriate action.

The benefits of recruiting Governors from the business community flow in many directions. Schools and therefore the pupils, community and local economy, can gain as improved management leads to improved performance and academic achievement. Employers can benefit from staff developing their strategic management competencies and applying these back in the workplace. Employees can help to discover their own potential whilst at the same time helping our children achieve theirs.

If you feel that you require any more information, please feel free to contact the chair of governors, Sarah Warren at Sarah.Warren@sgmail.org.uk
