Parent Governors

We are looking for new Parent Governors to join the Governing Board

To Parents and Carers

Are you enthusiastic about wanting the best education for children and do you have some time to spare?  Then you are just the person we need to join The Westgate School's Governing Board as a Parent Governor.  

What do school governors do?

Governors work as a team with the Head Teacher to make key decisions vital to the successful running of the school. They:

  • make decisions that directly affect the education and well-being of the students;
  • play an important role in improving standards throughout the school; and
  • are responsible for the school's finances.

Parent governors
As a parent governor you can make a valuable contribution to the running of the school. You will be able to offer your enthusiasm and commitment - and as a parent, you'll understand other parents' concerns.  Parents with particular skills such as IT or business skills can also offer extremely helpful expertise to the school.

How do I find out more?

If you would like to discuss becoming a Governor in more detail, our Chair of Governors would be pleased to have an informal chat with you.  To arrange this, please leave a message at reception or e-mail:
