Governor Vacancies

Community Governor

We are looking to expand the Gateway Academy's Local Governing Board. The role of an Academy governor is exciting, challenging and rewarding. Academy governors are people from the Academy’s community who wish to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They can take part in all aspects of Academy life and it’s up to each governor how much they get involved. However, there is a certain amount of commitment that is required and this should be considered when deciding if you want to become a governor.

At the present time, the Governing Board meetings are held 3 times per year, termly and are usually on Thursdays, from 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm. In addition, governors will need to be able to undertake training to fulfil their roles effectively, particularly with regard to statutory duties such as discipline and exclusion panels.

The Governing Board has significant influence in relation to the overall direction and effective management of the Academy and Governors have an important role to play as members of the Governing Board. It is, therefore, important that governors visit the Academy to absorb the culture and ethos.

We look forward to hearing from you.
