Governors wanted for Childeric Primary School

John Stevens writes:

A few years ago, in a moment of public spiritedness I volunteered to Lewisham Council to be a governor at a local school. After a few months I was offered a place as a community governor at Childeric Primary School in New Cross (round the back of the New Cross Inn) – and since then have gone on to really enjoy helping out with the management of the school with my fellow 8-9 governors.

We do have one or two vacancies on the governing body, including one community governor space, and I wondered if anyone else in the Brockley area might be interested in signing up? The time commitment is fairly minimal – roughly 2 evening meetings every 3 months – and no prior experience of the world of education is required (though an interest would help!). The main function of the role is to consider all scrutinise how the school is performing in a number of aspects (educationally, financially etc.) and advise as appropriate. After that the commitment is as big or as little as anyone wants it to be – help on school trips is always welcomed!

Further details of what we do can be found here:

If anyone is interested in being a community governor they should contact the school on, marking it for the attention of Jean Skitt.
