Governors

The governing board at Hook Junior School is looking for new governors to join them from the local community who can offer ‘life experience’ to the work of the school …

What do we need from you?

  • An interest in and commitment to helping children achieve their very best in all aspects of school life – you will join us as a champion for our children
  • An ability to listen to the ideas of others and pose questions in response – nothing is too silly to ask! Thinking ‘outside the box’ is strongly encouraged too

What we offer:

  • A friendly, welcoming group of governors, all committed to making a positive difference to children’s lives
  • Pacey, well-chaired meetings, allowing everyone to contribute, whilst making the most of everyone’s precious time
  • New governors will be provided with an induction and access to a mentor in their first 6 months. External training is also available and encouraged. 


Skills

Contrary to popular thought – you don’t have to be a parent, or connected to the school in some way to be a governor.

For the school, the main advantage of having you join our governing board, is the expertise and experience you can bring to the role. Knowledge of one or more of the following skills will greatly improve the effectiveness of our governing board and have a positive impact on the education of our pupils:

  • strategic planning
  • marketing
  • procurement
  • data analysis
  • performance management and employment issues
  • budgeting and driving financial efficiently
  • charitable trusts
  • special educational needs

Main elements of the role can be undertaken from home - however governors are requested to attend meetings and also from time to time visit the school and get to know the teaching staff and children.
