Eynsham Community Primary School currently has a vacancy for a governor. We are part of a recently-formed multi academy trust, Eynsham Partnership Academy (EPA), with Bartholomew secondary school and the other primary schools which feed into it (Long Hanborough, Freeland, Cassington, Stanton Harcourt and Standlake).
As a governor you would work as part of a team for a term of up to four years. There are 5-6 full governing body meetings per academic year and all governors are also required to join one of three committees which meet termly, six times a year.
We would like to hear from anyone who is interested in supporting their local primary school and has the time for this - especially those with expertise or skills in the areas of premises / buildings management and planning. We are not seeking people with education sector expertise (although these would not be precluded) and do not currently require more parent governors, as we have a good range of both of these and try to keep a broad balance within the governing body.
Being a governor is very interesting and rewarding as well as occasionally challenging and requiring a time commitment.
If you would like to apply, please contact the Chair of Governors, Dr Kirstie McKenzie-McHarg via email in the first instance firstname.lastname@example.org
