Carlton Junior and Infant School


How to become a governor

If you are interested in becoming a governor, please call the school for further information. When there is a vacancy for a parent governor all parents will be informed, and you will have a chance to stand for election.


Before you put yourself forward, please talk to your employer. Many employers recognise the role of school governor as useful work experience and may offer paid leave as part of their initiative to give back to the community.

If you are successful in your application (expression of interest and skills audit) , you will be invited to attend a full GB meeting to present to the board your reasons of wanting to become a governor and the skills, knowledge and experience you can bring to the team.
