Parent Governor Vacancy

Forthcoming Election of a Parent Governor at Hillside Primary School

Our governing board are currently seeking nominations of parents who are interested in taking up the role of Parent Governor at Hillside.

Parent governors are elected by the parents or guardians of children attending the school.

All parents or guardians of children attending the school are entitled to propose or second candidates and vote. Nomination papers for this purpose can be obtained from the school office. 

The completed nomination papers must be returned to school by 15th November 2019.

If the number of nominations received are equal to, or less than, the number of vacancies there will be no need to hold a ballot.  If a ballot is necessary, it will be by "postal" ballot and your child will be asked to deliver and return your voting (ballot) paper. One ballot paper per parent or guardian is allowed, irrespective of how many of your children attend the school.

Ballot papers must be returned in sealed envelopes to the school no later than 22nd November 2019 (which will also be the "date of the election")

Being a governor can be very enjoyable and worthwhile. If you are interested, then we would strongly advise you to obtain further information from the school office.
