The East Somerset Federation Governing Body encompasses Bruton Primary and Upton Noble C of E VC Primary Schools and includes volunteers from both communities. This enables us to use our experience and knowledge to support the pupils and staff in creating and sustaining a happy and successful learning environment at both our schools.
As a governor you will be part of an enthusiastic and supportive team who have a genuine interest in education and are committed to the Federation’s success. You will have the opportunity to contribute and do something valuable for the next generation and ‘give something back’ to our schools’ community.
The role is that of a ‘challenging friend’ and varies from monitoring subject performance across the curriculum, helping to make decisions about budget allocation, to ensuring that health & safety and child protection measures are fully embedded within the Federation. Our Governors have the opportunity to develop new skills as well as making good use of existing ones by chairing meetings, debating, asking questions, making suggestions and appointing staff.
If you would like more information about becoming a Governor at the East Somerset Federation, please contact the Clerk to the governors firstname.lastname@example.org.
