Parent Nomination Form

Process for Selection and Appointment of Parent Governors

As the parent, carer or other person with parental responsibility for a pupil at this school you have the right to both propose candidates and stand as a candidate yourself.

If you decide to put yourself forward for the parent governor vacancy you will need to find two other parents willing to propose and second your nomination. You will need to ask them to complete and sign section A of the form.

If more parents want to become governors than there are vacancies, a ballot will be held. Ballot papers and details of the election process will be sent to all parents and carers eligible to vote.

If you put yourself forward and no ballot is necessary you will be elected unopposed from the day after the deadline for nominations passes.

You are invited to provide a statement to support your nomination as a parent governor (see section B of the nomination form). If a ballot is held this statement will be included on the ballot paper to help other parents decide who to vote for.

If you are elected as a governor your term of office will normally be four years. You can resign at any time. If your child leaves the school you can continue as a governor until the end of your term office.

If you are elected you will be required to complete an Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau disclosure check.
