Job Description

Duxford C of E Community Primary School (CB22 4RA) is looking for a volunteer from a finance background to join their governing body.

A school's governing body needs to have a balance and diversity of knowledge, skills and backgrounds to perform effectively. As a school governor you will be supporting the head teacher with key decisions such as the recruitment of senior members of staff, budget allocation, curriculum and premises.  We are particularly looking for someone with financial experience and/or experience of corporate or charitable governance to join the team.

The role of school governor is a serious commitment with approximately 10 meetings per year; it is also, however, richly rewarding, making a real difference to the educational outcomes of local children, and providing an opportunity for skills development. There is substantial training available.
