Governor Vacancy

The board of Governors at Ash Grange consists of parents, teachers, and individuals from the community to help us oversee the running of the school in the most effective way. The role involves around commitment both in person and remotely, across a variety of activities including:

  • Face to face meetings in school (up to 5 hours per term)

  • School visits as required for monitoring and Report writing

  • Virtual meetings 

  • Training - provided via professional bodies

The time commitment works out at around 1 hour per week during term times, or more if you can. 


We are a friendly and welcoming group, with meetings running to time. We run 3 committees, which focus on Learning and progress, Pastoral and well-being, and Finance and staffing. Each of these consists of 1 meeting per term, 8-9am on a Tuesday. Once per term we hold a Full Governing Board meeting, which is on a Tuesday from 8-10am.


The role requires competence in using Microsoft Teams, although support can be required to get you started.


We have a current gap for a Coopted Governor who is in our local community but not a current parent os staff member.  We would welcome a business background but this is not essential, a passion for education and a desire to support a local school it.


If you are interested in this rewarding role and would like to find out more, please contact the school office and we will give you the Chair of Govenrors; information to find out more.
