Parent Governor Election

6th December 2017

Dear Parent / Guardian

We welcome nominations beginning on 4th December 2017 for the election of a Parent Governor to serve on the Board of Governors for the four-year period 2018-2022.

Please contact the Principal’s secretary for a nomination form. If you are nominating a parent your form must be returned to the school by 4.00 pm on Monday 8th January 2018

The Parent Governor is elected by parents of pupils attending the school at the time of the election from amongst the parents of such pupils. The relevant legislation defines the term ‘parent’ as including a guardian and every person who has the actual custody of the pupil.

An elected Parent Governor remains in office for the four year term even if they cease to be a parent of a child attending the school.

Each eligible parent is entitled to nominate candidates, to vote and to stand for election. Participation is not restricted to one parent per family.

Only persons who are eligible to vote may propose and second nominations.

The election of our Parent Governor will take place by secret ballot in the school Assembly Hall on Friday 19th January 2018.  Voting times are as follows: 9.30 am – 11.30 am and 1.15 pm – 3.15 pm.

May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support for St Mary’s.

Yours faithfully

John Martin

Principal and Clerk of the Election
