The Governing Body meet regularly to make decisions about the work of the schools. The focus of the Governing Body is on providing a high quality education for all the Blue Coat Infant and Junior pupils. All the schools’ policies, budgets and curriculum are agreed by the Governing Body.
Parent Governor Elections
Our Governing Body includes four Parent Governors (two from the Infant School and two from the Junior School). There are currently two vacancies – one for each school – and we are inviting parents/guardians to think about putting their name forward to become a Parent Governor.
If becoming a Parent Governor is something that interests you, or if you know of another parent/guardian who would make a good Parent Governor, please contact Mr Orlik for more information about these elections or if you want to discuss what is involved in being a Parent Governor.
Full details about how to put your name forward are available on this page in the documents below, and from both school offices.
Nominations must be returned to school by the end of the school day on Monday November 13th.
If more parents put their name forward than there are vacancies, there will be an election, where all parents with children at our schools will have a vote.
