Banstead Community Junior School (BCJS) is seeking to appoint new governors to join its governing body from December 2017. BCJS is a 3 form entry Junior School for ages 7 to 11, and is located at The Horseshoe in Banstead.
School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education. They are one of the largest volunteer forces in the country and their role is key to the effectiveness of a school. School governors are like trustees and they help the school with its strategy, hold the head teacher to account for the school’s performance and make sure the school’s budget is properly managed.
Becoming a school governor is very rewarding. It is also needs to be a serious commitment. You would be required to attend a minimum of 4 full governing body meetings each year. You may also be asked to join a Committee and attend 2 or 3 Committee meetings each term. In addition, you may take on further responsibilities and will be asked to undertake a number of focused school visits each year. All meetings take place before or after school hours.
