Vacancy for a Foundation Academy Council Governor at Dilton Marsh Primary School
Would you like to take an active role in supporting our school and its students?
We are looking for a Foundation representative to join our Academy Council.
The Academy Council operates as a sub-committee of The Acorn Education Trust Board of Trustees.
As a member of the Academy Council this role is to both support and challenge the school. You will need to ask questions to help investigate how the school is progressing. Simply by asking key questions and listening to the responses, you can help.
Much like a Governing Body, the Academy Council’s role is to:
• Ensure children learn in a safe environment and to the maximum of their ability
• Ensure clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
• Hold the Head to account for the educational performance of the Academy and its students
• Promote the safety and wellbeing of students including behaviour, discipline and attendance.
You will be provided with training and support and would be expected to attend 4 evening meetings during the academic school year, these are currently being held remotely.
If you have the skills, time, commitment and discretion to help Dilton Marsh Primary School move forward please contact Zoe Stockley, Governance Adviser.
Acorn Education Trust, c/o Kingdown School, Woodcock Road, Warminster, BA12 9DR. Telephone: 07828 317188. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to the above information, the Diocese of Salisbury say this:
“The responsibilities of a foundation governor are the same of those of other governors. In addition, Salisbury Diocesan Board of Education describes the role of the Foundation Governor as a form of ministry. We believe that those who serve in this way are called by God to do so, and as such, their Christian faith is fundamental to their exercise of their role. The key function of foundation governors is to ‘explore, with their partners on the Governing Body, ways in which the Church’s role in the school may be more fully and positively implemented.’
