School Governor Vacancy

Ever thought of giving something back to your community? Would you like to make a positive impact for the children and staff at The Downley School by contributing your skills and expertise to support realising our school community’s vision ‘to equip every child with the knowledge and self-belief to be happy?’

The Downley School Governing Board is currently recruiting Co-opted Governors and we are particularly looking for volunteers to join us with skill sets and experience in:

  • Education
  • Finance
  • Health and Safety

Here’s what’s involved...

Becoming a school Governor is hugely rewarding and provides a great opportunity for personal development, learning many transferable skills. Professional training and mentoring are all provided. You will be required to attend Full Governing Board meetings, make visits to school, take responsibility for monitoring a specific area within school, as well as working in partnership with our senior leadership team to drive school improvement.

Interested? Here’s where you can find out more...www.downley.bucks.sch.uk

If you have the passion, enthusiasm, commitment and time to work as a part of a dedicated team to support the school to be successful and make a difference for all of the children in our school, then the Governing Board would like to invite you to contact us by emailing governors@thedownleyschool.co.uk

Some important things to know...

This is a volunteer role.
You do not need to be a parent/carer of a child at our school.
Safeguarding our children and staff is our priority and all Governors will be required to complete an application process, enhanced DBS check and Section 128 check.
