Governing Body Vacancy

Middleton Cheney Primary Academy (MCPA) is looking to recruit two new governors to join our newly restructured governing body.

About the School

MCPA is a large village primary school with approx. 400 pupils and approximately 35 teaching and support staff. The academy is part of the PRIME7 Multi Academy Trust (MAT) of which Chipping Warden Primary Academy and Kings Sutton Primary Academy are also members. We work collaboratively to improve and maintain teaching standards and education across the MAT. The school prides itself on providing a nurturing environment for both pupils and staff which is sought to be achieved through embracing the school values and the key skills for learning. More »

About the Local Governing Body

The Local Governing Body (LGB) is made up of Parent Governors, Staff representatives and Community Governors. We seek to work closely with the MAT Board (the MCPA Chair is currently also a Director of the MAT). The LGB is involved in decisionsabout all aspects of managing the school.

What is involved?

In order to be an effective governor it is important that you are able to both represent the views of our local community and consider these in relation to the priorities and needs of the school. Consequently it is important that governors are able to spent time at the school in order to develop their understanding and make informed decisions.

Meetings are held once each half term, usually starting at 6/6:30pm and lasting approximately two hours. Additionally you will need to visit the school, read and consider reports and policies. There will also be governor training sessions for you to attend.

Each member takes on a subject link governor role and a key lead role in relation to the Scheme of Delegation (e.g. Health & Safety, Safeguarding, Finance etc.).

Why me?

Being a Governor is a serious commitment, but it can be very rewarding. These websites may be helpful in developing your understanding: www.sgoss.org.ukand www.nga.org.uk/Be-a-Governor.aspx.

The MCPA local governing board is specifically looking for local community and business members with the following skills and attributes:

  • An interest and understanding of primary education and current drivers
  • Community spirited and able to represent the community
  • Knowledge of financial planning and management
  • Experience of procurement / purchasing
  • An inquiring mind and the confidence to ask questions and debate issues that affect the school
  • Able to objectively consider matters and make informed decisions for the benefit of the school.

How do I apply?

To arrange an informal discussion, please contact Carolyn Hay (Chair of Governors) chair.governors@mcpa.org.uk.

To apply, please submit a covering letter and supporting statement (no more than 500 words) to chair.governors@mcpa.org.ukby 4pm on 18thJanuary 2019. We will seek to notify you of the outcome by 21stJanuary to allow you to attend the meeting on 24thJanuary at 5:30pm. » Less
