School Governor Vacancy


Are you passionate about supporting your local community?


Do you believe all children deserve the best experiences to support them to achieve?

If yes, why not volunteer with us as a Co-opted Governor?


Our OUTSTANDING nursery currently has a vacancy for a Co-opted Governor to join our enthusiastic and forward-thinking Governing Body.


Governors are strategic leaders within schools and have a vital role in making sure every child gets the best possible education.


Governing bodies have a strong focus on three core functions:


  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and the performance management of the staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent


Our Governing Body currently meet once a month, except for August and December. As Governor you would attend these meetings, having read the information shared before and be ready to ask questions and find out more. Visits to the schools also form part of the monitoring role and some Governors have individual special responsibilities.


No one Governor is expected to know it all and we work together as a team to support one another, bringing our own strengths and areas of interest. Our shared skill is our commitment and interest in our children’s futures and achieving the best for all.


Being a school governor is a very rewarding volunteer role that affords you the knowledge that you are giving back something to the local community. It offers great opportunity for personal development and learning new transferrable skills.


No experience necessary, just the desire to learn! Full induction and training package is offered


If you want to find out more, visits to the Nursery are warmly welcomed. Please contact the school office if you wish to visit on 01329 232095.  For more information or to apply, please see our website or come into reception to pick up an application pack. We look forward to meeting you!

Haven Nursery School and Hampshire County Council are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.  We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.  All successful candidates will be subject to Disclosure and Barring Service checks along with other relevant employment checks.
