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.
