Parent Governor Election

Dear Parents,

Re: Election of Parent Governor

I am pleased to inform you of the result of our election for parent governor.

• Elected: Jamila Dixon (For full results, please see letters to parents page)

I would like to thank those who put their names forward and we are sorry that we were unable to accept all the applicants as governors at this time.

There may be vacancies in other schools in the area, and if you were unsuccessful and would like to be considered as a school governor elsewhere, I know that the Borough’s Governor Services Team will be pleased to hear from you.

Please ask in the school office for the contact address if you would like more details.

We welcome Jamila to the Governing Body and thank her for joining us in the task of improving our children’s education.
