Vacancy for a School Governor at Wreake Valley Academy

It has been two years since Wreake Valley Academy has had any vacancies for governors. This year two vacancies have arisen for community governors.
Wreake Valley is keen to encourage members of our local community to think about joining our governing body.
Wreake Valley is graded ‘good’ by Ofsted and that grading has been achieved with the help and support of a strong governing body. Governors play a vital role in helping to shape the strategic direction of the school, they work with senior members of staff to inform and help shape the decisions that we take.
Our governing body has members from a range of backgrounds, and that diversity is important in ensuring that we have a full range of views and experience when taking decisions. You do not have to have any previous experience of working on a governing
body. The commitment works out on average at about one meeting per month across the year, plus one visit to the school during the working day, at least once a year.
The role of governors and governing bodies has changed dramatically in recent years so we have put together some information on our website to give you an overview of what the role
involves. Please see our website:
