Bulford St Leonard’s Primary School: Academy Advisory Board
Parent Nominations

 

October 2016

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

A vacancy has arisen for a parent member to serve on the Academy Advisory Board of this school.  We are very keen to encourage parents (or people with parental responsibility) of registered pupils to nominate themselves to fill this place. Please read: Who can be a parent member

Parent members are elected by parents and from parents and are vital to our Advisory Board. You will work with other members and the principal to support the development and improvement of teaching, learning and standards.

If you join our Advisory Board, you will serve for a four year term and you can continue to the end of the term of office even if your child/children leave the school. Of course, being a member does take up time.  The Advisory Board meetings are held once a term.  You will need to set aside time to be able to be an effective member, time to prepare for meetings, for visiting the school, undertaking training and updating.  

To find out more about being a parent member at this school you can contact the school office and leave your contact details and Mrs Helen Mathieson, CEO SPA will contact you and will be very willing to answer any questions. 

If you would like to take the opportunity to put yourself forward as a candidate, please complete and return a nomination form to the school office by Monday 17th October

If more than one person is nominated, there will need to be an election, I will contact you to let you know about the arrangements.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Sarah Ward

Principal
