New Christ Church CE Primary School is one of three primary schools in Berkshire Schools Trust. We are looking for three Foundation governors who are committed to giving children an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice and will support, sustain and develop the Christian character of the school.
Our governors are there to support and challenge the school, making sure the children do as well as they can and that public money allocated to the school is being spent in their interests. This means being confident to read reports and financial information, to ask questions and to lead on monitoring a particular aspect of school activity, visiting school to understand the area and typing up your visit in a report to share with the rest of the board.
Our governors are an open and friendly group, ranging in ages, backgrounds and skills. We would welcome applications from anyone from the wider Reading area who would like to help our children to aim high and do well and whowill embrace and uphold our Christian ethos. We are particularly keen to attract someone with a background in finance or community work in the Reading area who has the time to commit to at least six evening meetings and a few extra visits into school per year.
All applicants will be subject to safer recruitment procedures and any governors appointed will be subject to an enhanced DBS check.
