Parent Governor Vacancy

The Governing Board at Collingwood College has a vacancy for a Parent Governor.  The Clerk will commence the nomination process shortly and all parents/carers will receive a letter setting out this process.

School governing boards, including those in academies like Collingwood, are now expected to recruit governors with skills, experiences and the commitment to develop these.  We have a diverse range of skills and experience already represented on Collingwood’s Governing Board and are looking for parents who have a general interest in education, the ability to analyse and understand data, or an understanding of finance and are comfortable asking questions. Training is provided for governors in Surrey and we do expect all governors to engage in their own development as a way of ensuring our effectiveness as a Governing Board.

The Collingwood Governing Board meets once a term and operates five committees, which also meet each term.  Governors at Collingwood sit on two of our five committees.  Our meetings are at 8.00am and our aim is always to finish by 10.00am.   

If you are interested in the education of all students at Collingwood and are prepared to contribute your time and energy to support the College’s continual strive to improve our provision, then please do consider putting forward your nomination.  If you would like to find out more, or have any questions at this stage, then please do feel free to contact me via the Clerk to the Governing Body:

Mr Barker - Chair of the Governing Board
