Malmesbury Park has nine school governors from a wide range of backgrounds. Some are parents with children at the school, two are staff members and others are members of the wider community. The Headteacher is automatically a member of the governing body.
What we all have in common is a desire to support and guide the school so that it offers the best possible education and social development to the children who attend it, preparing every child effectively for the move to secondary school.

School Governor vacancies!
School governors oversee our school at a local level, providing support and challenge to the Headteacher and her senior team while monitoring the school’s performance. Governor monitoring looks at safeguarding, teaching and learning, health and safety and school finance, with different governors taking the lead on an area in which they have an interest. Being a governor is a rewarding, voluntary role which gives you an opportunity to contribute positively to the experience of children at the school.
There are 12 posts on Malmesbury Park’s Local Governing Body. Our parent governor and staff governor roles are filled, but we have some other vacancies for members of the wider community. We are looking for new governors to fill these. We are keen for the governing body to reflect the diversity we see in our school.
Do you know anyone who would be interested? This could be a grandparent or family member of a child at the school. It could be a work colleague or friend. If so, the first step is to ask them to contact the school office, who will arrange for them to have an informal chat with one of our current governors about what’s involved.
