Randwick are looking for a Foundation Governor

Randwick Primary School is looking for someone to join our governing body as a Foundation Governor. 

This is an exciting volunteering opportunity to join our friendly and enthusiastic team, responsible for strategic management of the school, and to act as a “critical friend”, supporting the work of the headteacher and other staff.  The governing body is responsible for managing the budget to cover salaries, running costs, maintenance and equipment.  Foundation Governors in particular help to ensure that the school remains a church school with all that that implies.

In a voluntary controlled school like ours there are two Foundation Governors and they are there to see that the school takes account of its church foundation.  The governing board has a vital role to play in making sure every child at Randwick receives the best possible education. This is achieved by ensuring that governors have the necessary skills and commitment to contribute to the effective governance and success of the school.

The particular skills that governing boards need will vary and will include personal qualities and capabilities, such as the capacity and willingness to learn and work as part of a team.  Governors can make use of the various training opportunities available to them and play a full part in the work of the governing board.  We welcome nominations from members of our local community.

Please do email [email protected] for more information or our Chair of Governors, Mrs Alison Inwood, at [email protected].  Many thanks.  David Poad, Headteacher.

Communion during this time

In these unprecedented times, we are working hard to find imaginative solutions in a landscape that has been rapidly changing. Sometimes we get things right, and sometimes we miss the mark. I apologise that this has been the case regarding communion.

For those of you who have received wafers in a parcel, we would ask that you either consume them, or put them somewhere safe to bring back once we are able to be together again.

We are going to be sending out a new order of service for use during this time as either a simple service of the word or, on occasion, to help us to share an Agape meal together.
