Voluntary Trust Appointed Governors

Chestnuts Primary School is part of the Inspiring Futures through Learning Multi-Academy Trust. We are looking for voluntary Trust Appointed Governors to join our LGB (Local Governing Board).

Behind every successful school is a team of strategic leaders; each one different from the other but kindred in spirit and ambition. As a team, school governors are focused in pursuit of one shared purpose; to ensure every single one of our children and young people receive the very best education and support possible.

We are looking to recruit governors - people who are passionate about education including those who are not from an educational background. In fact, we are looking for people who bring a diversity of skills, backgrounds and experiences who think strategically and offer different perspectives.

Our governors work as part of a team and commit to attending six governor meetings per year (with pre-reading) and undertake three governance visits, during the school day, annually as part of your role in assurance and building relationships with the school communities of children, staff and parent / carers.  To support you in this role, a strong programme of training, development and networking over 5-6 further sessions per year.  

We'd love to hear from you if you feel you have skills that the board and school would benefit from and if you want to develop your personal and professional abilities with free training. 

Please complete an application form and we will be in touch:

Here are all the current vacancies within our Multi Academy Trust;
