Mary Webb School and Science College - looking for governors
8th July 2019

Mary Webb School and Science College is part of the Central Shropshire Academy Trust and we are looking for a number of co-opted governors to join our friendly local governing body. Our governors come from a range of different backgrounds, skills and experience but all share the school’s values and have a common interest of wanting the best possible education for the young people in our school.
There is no requirement for you to have an understanding of the education system, just the skills, character and time to contribute. There is plenty of training available to help you learn about education but we need a range of professional knowledge on our governing board and are looking for people with skills in special educational needs, finance, human resources, legal, marketing, property & estates management, organisational change and safeguarding.
Co-opted governors are not elected but instead appointed directly by the governing body, usually for a term of four years. In this voluntary role you will:

  •  Help to set and review the schools strategic direction and agreeing targets for improvement.
  •  Hold the headteacher and school leaders to account for the educational performance of the school and its students
  •  Oversee the financial performance of the school

You will become responsible for a subject area or specific aspect of the school, serve on one or two of our sub-committees and be required to attend and contribute to termly full governing body meetings. Meetings are usually towards the end of the day but as a subject link you will be required to make occasional visits into school during the day time.
If you are interested or know of somebody else who would be then please contact Mrs Nicky Murray on 01743 792101 no later than Friday 19th July 2019 (or email if that date has passed) to make arrangements to have an informal chat with the chair of governors and headteacher.
Governors are essential for the effectiveness and success of our school and it is an extremely rewarding and fulfilling role.
Quotes from our latest Ofsted report regarding the governance in school were:

  •  “The governing body is very well informed”
  •  “They are closely involved in the life of the school, make regular visits to the school”

Working together to ensure success for all
