Do you have a genuine desire to help improve standards of education within our school in partnership with the Headteacher and Governing Body? We are looking for a Community or Local Authority governor who has knowledge and understanding of modern education issues as well as a knowledge and interest within the community of Holywell.
You would need to commit to regular attendance at full governing body meetings, as well as any meetings of any committees of the governing body to which you are elected. We are seeking new members of the governing body who have relevant skills, knowledge and experience that match the challenges of our school.
The role of a governor would be to drive the school at a strategic level. You will bring an outside perspective to the running of the school, supporting and challenging by asking the what, why, how and when of our senior leadership team. Governors use their own professional skills and life experience to compliment school staff to ensure Ysgol Treffynnon continue to provide exceptional education for our local community and is able to be agile and responsive to our current and future needs.
Be part of the largest volunteer group in the country and gain valuable skills that will have a positive impact on your personal and professional life and you will make a real difference to children, young people, their school and the local community.
