Parent Governor Vacancy 


Dear Parent/Carer,


St Mary's Catholic Voluntary Academy has a position for a parent governor on our Local Governing Board. 

If you are interested in becoming a governor, please complete the Parent Governor Election Nomination Form and Governor Declaration of Eligibility Form together with a short personal statement (no more than 200 words please) about yourself for circulation to voters and return to the Clerk to Governors by 12.00noon on 26th February 2021. 


You should note that an elected Governor is appointed for a four-year term. The main duties and responsibilities of a governor are set out on the attached sheet. 

Please note that Local Governor Board meetings are usually held on Mondays at 5.30pm during term time but this day can sometimes vary and there are a few times that a governor will be required to attend during the school day. There are usually six meetings an academic year. 


If the number of candidates exceeds the number of vacancies, an electoral process will take place via the ParentMail App. 


If you have any queries regarding the role please contact the Clerk to Governor at the Academy on
