From the Chairman of Governors
The current parent governors have completed their four-year terms of office and we would like to thank Tara Hallam and Owen Barden for their valuable contribution to the governance of the College. We now need to hold elections for 2 parent governors to join the governing body.
We are very keen to encourage parents (or people with parental responsibility) of registered pupils to nominate themselves to fill these places. Details of what you will need to do to be nominated are given on the letter above.
Parent governors are elected by other parents and are vital to our governing body. They share equally with other governors the responsibility for carrying out the governing body's wide range of responsibilities. Governors do not run the school day to day, as their role is at the strategic or policy-making level in the school. You do not have to be an expert on education to be a school governor. We aim to have a Board of Governors from different backgrounds and settings who will bring a diverse range of skills and experiences which will have a positive impact on setting the strategic direction for Liverpool College.
If you join our governing body, you will serve for a four-year term and you can continue to the end of the four years even if your child/children leave the school. Being a governor does take up time. There are usually 4 governing body meetings each year normally at 6pm on a Monday evening. Governors are also asked to serve on at least one committee, which will meet once a term. You will need to set aside time to be able to be an effective governor. Please read the leaflet above explaining more about the role of a Parent Governor.
If you would like to take the opportunity to put yourself forward as a candidate, you may only do so on an official form, a copy of which can be downloaded here. Please complete the form and return it to Mrs Sally Loveridge, Clerk to the Governors (at the College address) by 4 pm on 30 September 2021. If it is necessary for there to be an election, I will contact you to let you know about the arrangements.
