Trust Appointed Governor – Bassingbourn Village College

 

Anglia Learning Multi-Academy Trust is looking to appoint a governor to the Local Governing Body of Bassingbourn Village College.

 

BVC is an excellent school with a strong positive ethos. In 2017 the College achieved a “Good” rating from Ofsted, who described BVC as a great school built upon strong relationships. Ofsted noted in particularly the safe and inclusive atmosphere, where good behaviour is a strength and supports learning well.

 

Governors are responsible for providing strategic leadership and accountability in schools. They help to decide the priorities for improving the school and work in partnership with the Headteacher, senior leadership team and other governors to raise standards and improve outcomes for all students. Our Trust governors are very valuable members of the governing body and we rely on them to provide us with the skills and experience we need to function effectively. These include understanding and/or experience of governance and strategic planning, communication skills including being able to discuss sensitive issues tactfully, and ability to analyse and understand data.

 

Being a school governor also requires a time commitment that includes attending meetings and events inside and outside of school, and reading and commenting on documents outside of meetings. You will also be required to attend training courses and termly briefings outside of school.

 

If you have time to commit to this role we would like you to consider becoming a Trust governor at BVC.

 

The term of office for a Trust governor is four years.

 

Anyone who is interested in becoming a Trust governor should contact Mr Will Clayton, the Chair of the Local Governing Body, by email: wclayton@anglianlearning.org
