Horsham Nursery School - Governor Advert

We are currently looking for two new co-opted governors to join our friendly governing body. Our governors come from a range of different backgrounds, skills and experience but all share a common interest of wanting the best possible education for the children in our nursery.
We would be delighted to hear from anyone who:-

•Is interested in early years education
•Is community spirited and would like to represent the community
•Has spare time and the energy for the role
•Is able to work well as part of a team
•Has an enquiring mind and the confidence to ask questions and debate issues that affect the nursery
•Can consider matters objectively and make informed judgements These volunteer positions are open to parents/guardians or other people from the community. Co-opted governors are not elected by a parent election but are instead appointed directly by the governing body.

What is the role of the governing body?
•Helping to set and review the schools strategic direction and agreeing targets for improvement
•Holding the Headteacher and school leaders to account for the educational performance of the nursery
•Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure public money is well spent

What does the role offer?
•A chance to develop your own personal skills
•Access to a programme of free training in respect of education/governance matters
•A sense of achievement in helping make a difference to children reaching their potential
•The support and guidance from fellow governors

In looking to fill these vacancies we are particularly interested in applications from people with education experience and also people who can occasionally visit the nursery during the day, although please do not be put off if you do not have these skills. What is more important is enthusiasm, interest and the willingness to learn.
