Governor Vacancies at
Northlands Wood Primary Academy
Are you looking for a new challenge and an opportunity to make a difference?
Do you have a passion for improving opportunities for children in education in your community?
Would you like to develop your own professional skills?
If you answered ‘yes’ to all three questions, perhaps you might consider volunteering as a school governor at Northlands Wood Primary Academy
Our Governors play an important role in leading our Sussex Learning Trust academies. They set the strategic vision and direction, approve the budget and hold the Headteacher and senior leaders to account for the educational outcomes of our pupils. The Governing Body has significant delegated authority to lead the academies backed up by the support and partnership opportunities provided by Sussex Learning Trust.
Our Governors are all volunteers. Working together as a local governing body, they play a valuable role in bringing their own experiences and perspectives from work, public service and the community together to help support, challenge and inform decision-making for our academy. They all share the collective aim of promoting ongoing development and improvement of our academy in the interests of the children and communities that they serve.
We would particularly welcome applications from individuals with relevant professional skills or personal experience and:
● a background in education, finance or strategic planning to further complement the skills
and experience of the existing governing body; and/or
● a real passion for improving opportunities for young people in our academy and the local
