Parent Governors

Risedale needs YOU! Become a Parent Governor and help us be the best school we can.

We currently have 2 vacancies available for Parent Governors here at Risedale... could you be the person we're looking for?

Do YOU want to make a difference to your child's education? Can YOU support your child's school in its efforts to do the best for all of Catterick's children? Do YOU want to be part of an incredible journey helping to shape its course and future direction? Can YOU commit to after-school governor meetings (usually once a half term) AND support some occasional daytime visits? If so, why not apply for the parent governor election?

The following documents will give you all the information you need to find out more about the Parent Governor election process, nominating yourself and other documents regarding the role. Apply today! Nominations due: Monday 27th January.

NB: Hard copies of these documents can be provided free of charge by contacting the Headteacher's PA. Stephanie Blood.

Governors play a vital role in driving the strategic direction of their local school for their community. They work tirelessly to ensure that all young people access an education that will give them the best chance of success in their life and ensure that school leaders do their very best to use school funds and staffing to achieve positive outcomes for all. School governors are appointed for a term of service up to four years, must be able to pass an enhanced disclosure and barring check (criminal records check) and not disqualified from holding office for any of the reasons set out in the Self Declaration - Disqualification Sept 2017 document. 

If you would like to discuss the role in more detail, please contact Stephanie Blood for an appointment to meet a senior colleague in the school who will be happy to talk through the role with you. If you would like to apply for the role, please complete a nomination form and write a short personal statement (no more than 250 words) about yourself and why you would like to represent other parents in your community. If you can, please also state what difference you would make to the role. What you write will be printed on the election papers for other parents to see. 

You would join us at a very exciting time on our journey. Progress is rising, attendance is now above national averages, exclusions are very low, there are more subjects on offer to pupils and the school has just achieved a "Good" Ofsted rating (November 2019) in its new and more challenging inspection framework! But our journey of improvement is not yet complete….. can YOU help us to get there?
