Chesswood Junior School

Junior Governing Body

Who we Are

Two representatives are selected for each class from years 4 to 6; year 3 representatives will be selected later in the school year. All children are invited to apply to be a Junior Governor, presentations are held if there are more than two nominees in a class for the children to give an account of why they would be a good choice; one child is voted in by the class and the other is selected by the teacher in discussions with the year group to ensure representation from across the spectrum of the school community.

A huge thank you to these Junior Governors as their term of service comes to an end. New Junior Governors will be voted in by each class (year 3 do not start until summer term) ready for next half term.

This calendar has been created by the Junior Governors to raise awareness of good causes and school events, providing links to find out more information about the event, explaining how we will be raising awareness of the event, including fundraising. 

Further PTA events will be added during the year. Sometimes it is necessary to alter dates of events.  Should this occur, these changes will be highlighted at the top of the diary.
