Community Governor

Location: Blisland Primary Academy

Closing Date:

Blisland Primary Academy is seeking Community Governors to add to the Governing Body to help drive the strategic development and ethos in the school. A community governor can be anybody who lives or works in or around the areas in which the school is located. We are looking for people with a wide range of experience, and candidates do not need to be experts in education. We seek individuals who have drive and energy and are willing to use their skills to support the school and contribute to the educational outcomes of our pupils. Your knowledge of the local community is vital. A key skill for all governors is to be able to question and challenge and work as part of the team of governors and school leaders to identify viable solutions to problems and opportunities.
As part of Bridge Schools Trust support to new governors is provided through an established induction process with ongoing opportunities to develop skills through training and shared best practice.
Local Governing Bodies meet up to 6 times a year and the role involves looking at the data and information provided in the form of a Head of School report and other documentation before the meetings, thus each meeting requires preparation. You will also be expected to visit the school at least once each half-term so you can understand how the policies work in practice and how the data plays out in the classroom. This provides you with knowledge about your school so you can represent this to the stakeholders including Parents/Carers, the Staff and the community.
Being a governor is an exciting and fulfilling role and a wonderful way to contribute to the future of all the children in our care at Blisland Academy. If you are interested in this vital role please drop an email to Cheryl Hill giving some brief details about yourself, following which you will be invited to meet informally to discuss the role. Cheryl is the chairman of the Bridge Schools Trust Board and is currently also Acting Chair for Blisland School. Cheryl’s email address is
