Opportunities to work at SJBCA

Parent Governor x1 - Dudley Regional Governing Body

We are seeking to appoint one parent governor to join our Dudley Regional Governing Body (DRGB), which has oversight of the three Dudley MAC schools of Bishop Milner Catholic College, St Chad’s Catholic Primary School and St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School. To be eligible for election you must be a parent of registered pupils of one of the schools at the time of the election. However, any parent who is an elected member of the local authority or employed to work at the college for more than 500 hours in any twelve consecutive months is not eligible to be a parent governor.


Our schools aim for positive and purposeful partnerships with parents, which undoubtedly bring important benefits to the pupils. The DRGBs main tasks are to support the schools, ensure that all pupils receive a high-quality education and plan for future development and improvement.


Parent governors are welcomed as valued members of the team and play a vital role in ensuring the Local Governing Board is aware of the views of stakeholders in the local community. We are confident that there are parents prepared to volunteer to take on this key role and give their time and commitment to help us continue to develop and improve the school’s performance. This commitment is shown through attending three meetings a year (held virtually currently) and occasional visits during the school day for Governors monitoring visits. Attendance at school events and productions are always appreciated.


There is currently one vacancy for an enthusiastic and committed Parent Governor and you are therefore invited to take part in the election of two Parent Governors who will serve on the Local Governing Board for four years unless they resign the post in the interim.


Nomination forms should be returned to Mrs H Parkes and must be returned to your child’s school completed no later than 12.00 noon on Friday 12 March 2021. Should only two nominations be received by the official closing date, the candidates will be duly elected unopposed.


In the event of there being three or more nominations an election will take place between 22 March 2021 and 26 March 2021. Information on voting arrangements will be sent to you at a later date.


Please note that you should not participate in more nominations than there are vacancies. Each nomination requires two proposers.
