Governor Election

Parent Governor Election - Autumn 2020

Firstly, thank you for taking an interest in governance at Chesswood Junior School. This leaflet is designed to provide a brief overview of life and governance at Chesswood Junior School.

The Governors of Chesswood are often seeking new governors to join the school governing body team. Parent governors are elected by their fellow parents and are vital to a governing body because they ensure that the other governors are kept in touch with the concerns and issues of most importance to families currently in school. Additionally co-opted governors would typically be independent of the school community and seek to balance the medium to long term requirements for all children. School governors represent the largest volunteer force in the country, with approximately 1% of the adult population serving in this capacity at any one time.

Governor Nomination Forms

We would ask all parent nominees to complete the online application in preference to the downloadable hard copy version. However, the hardcopy or the online form are equally valid and will be treated as such when the next stage of the election process commences. We have included a PDF and word version of our nomination forms.

You may complete the online form in the window below or follow this  link to complete in a new window. If using a small screen such as a mobile phone or tablet opening in a new window is recommended.
