Governors

LOCAL GOVERNOR OPPORTUNITY

We are currently looking for governors from our local community to join our school’s Local Governing Body.  Our governors come from a range of backgrounds, skills and experience but all share a common interest of wanting the best education and outcomes for the children in our school.

 

We would be delighted to hear from anyone who is:

  • Interested in children’s education and the performance of the school
  • Has spare time and energy for the role
  • Is able to work well as part of a team
  • Has an enquiring mind and the confidence to ask questions and debate issues which affect the school
  • Considers matters objectively and makes informed judgements

 

Governors gain a great deal from the work and time they contribute. It gives them an opportunity to serve the local community, contribute to children’s education, and a chance to help realise their own potential by learning new skills and practise existing ones.  For more detail please read the information note below or contact the School Clerk.

THE TENAX SCHOOLS TRUST

Sir Henry Fermor CE Primary School joined the Tenax Schools Trust as an academy on 1 April 2016. The Tenax Schools Trust is a Church of England multi-academy trust (MAT) that exists to provide outstanding education in both primary and secondary schools in Kent and East Sussex. Under the governance arrangements for the Tenax Schools Trust, each if its academies has its own Local Governing Body (LGB) to allow some areas of work to be monitored in more detail.

 

Sir Henry Fermor CE Primary School has 8 governors.

Our Local Governing Body meets between 3-4 times per year.

Individual governors also take on specific responsibilities as “link governors” for areas of the curriculum and aspects of the school’s life. These are detailed in the school’s LGB Information document below.

 

We are fortunate to have such a dedicated board of governors who are very active within the school; regularly coming into school and sharing in the learning and teaching taking place.
