Governor Vacancies

Dear Parents/ Carers and Members of our Community On behalf of Hayle Academy, Cape Cornwall School and St Ives School.

As you may know, the three secondary schools work in close partnership within the Truro and Penwith Academy Trust family of schools and have a joint Local Governing Board.

What does a Local Governing Board do?

The Local Governing Board plays a vital role in the success of our schools. It sets the vision for the schools, approves all policies, supported by the Trust it oversees their finances, and it holds school leaders to account for the educational performance of the schools. The broad range of perspectives and experiences of our Governors underpins our support for our schools and ensures that the schools continue to develop and to provide the highest standards of education for our young people.

How can I help?

We are looking to appoint new governors to join our Local Board and hope you, or someone you know, may be interested in this opportunity to support and contribute to your local schools.

What would it involve?

In total a Governor will usually attend 7 meetings per year: meetings last for a maximum of 2 hours. The full board will meet 4 times a year: twice in the Autumn Term and once in the Spring and Summer Term and there are sub-committees which meet termly covering areas such as behaviour and welfare, finance, premises, and quality of education.

 

How do you meet?

Meetings are held through a combination of online and ‘in person’ formats and usually start at 5pm. There are also opportunities for Governors to visit the schools, meet with staff and students and to contribute in a wide variety of ways.

 

Is there any training?

We have a wide range of training available including local Governor support networks so there is no expectation that you have any prior experience of Governance or background in education.  You do need however to have good interpersonal skills, recognise the need on occasions for confidentiality and a desire to make a positive difference to the lives of children in the local community.

 

What do I do next?

Should you have any questions, or if you would like to discuss the role informally, please do not hesitate to contact us.  For more information or to make a formal expression of interest in the role, please email Karen Hickson (Governance Officer) at karen.hickson@tpacademytrust.org.

Yours faithfully, Mark Arnold (Chair of Governors)
