Parent Governor Vacancy

We have a vacancy for a parent governor which we need to fill as soon as possible.  The Henry Cort Community College has always aimed for a partnership with parents which undoubtedly brings great benefits to the children.  Parent governors are welcomed as valued members of the team and play a vital role in ensuring the governing board is aware of the views of parents and the local community.  We feel sure that there are parents prepared to take on this important role and give their time and commitment to helping us to continue to improve the college's performance.  

If you feel you can help in this capacity, please download an application form, which will need to be completed and returned to the college by 12.00 noon on Wednesday 19 January 2022.

Why do we have a Governing Board?

 All schools are required to have a Governing Board, and like all such bodies our purpose is to:

  • help the college to set high standards by planning for the college's future and setting targets for college improvement.
  • keep the pressure up on college improvement.
  • be a critical friend to the college, offering support and advice.
  • help the college respond to the needs of parents and the community.
  • make the college accountable to the public for what it does.
  • work with the college on planning, developing policies and keeping the college under review.
  • exercise its responsibilities and powers in partnership with the Principal and staff.
  • not intervene in the day-to-day management of the college unless there are weaknesses in the college, then has a duty to take action.

If you would like to contact the Governing Board please email gb@henrycort.org.
