Parent governors as the title implies are drawn from Parents or Guardians of Children at the School.
Parent Governors normally serve for a period of 4 years and are elected by the Parents or Carers / Guardians of Children at the School.
From time to time the school will send home a letter notifying parents that there is a vacancy for a Parent Governor, and seeking nominations.
If there are more nominations than there are vacancies, then there will be a ballot at which point all of the parents get to vote for the candidate of their choice.
As a Parent Governor, elected by parents, the role of the Parent Governor is to bring a parental perspective to the Governing Bodies decision making rather than represent the parental constituency.
