Vacancy for Parent Governor

We are writing to invite parents to apply for the vacancy we have on our local governing body.  To be eligible to apply you must be a parent to a current pupil at Central CE Academy and over the age of 18.

What’s involved?

Parent governors play a very important role in keeping the local governing body aware of the views from the parental perspective. They are a vital part of our team and I hope that there are parents willing to give their time and commitment to this important role.  Meetings are held for 2 hours during school hours.

Being a governor allows you to see things from the academy's perspective and see how the academy is managed. You would also gain an in-depth understanding of how decisions are made, while playing an integral part in deciding what happens within the academy. You will also have the opportunity to develop your skills, both personally and professionally, gaining experience in the following areas:

  • Strategic planning
  • Experience on a board
  • Holding senior leaders to account
  • Finance, and maintaining oversight of school budgets
  • Human resources and performance management 
  • Project management
  • Marketing
  • Communication and teamwork
  • Decision making

If you would like to find out more information, or apply for a position, please email  The deadline for applications is Friday 29th November 2019.
