Swansea Council School Governing Bodies
Election of Parent Governors
I am writing to inform you that a vacancy has occurred for a Parent Governor for your child’s school and you are invited to submit a nomination for the post of Parent Governor.
In general, any parent of a registered pupil at the school, at the time of the election, is eligible to be a Parent Governor and to hold office for four years even though your child may leave the school in the meantime.
If you are eligible and wish to be nominated as a Parent Governor, you should complete the form overleaf and obtain the signature of the Headteacher.
The completed form should be returned to the box provided at the school, not later than Friday 1st February 2019, 3.00 p.m. Please note it is your responsibility to ensure that the nomination is placed in the box.
If there are more nominations received than the number of vacancies for Parent Governors, then an election will take place. Voting papers will be sent to all parents with children at the school.
Training courses for Governors are provided free by the Authority and information is also circulated from time to time regarding courses arranged by outside bodies, for which a fee may be payable.
Mr. G.A. Rees
