Mr. S. Tierney,
Parent Director Election
I am writing to you to invite you to stand for election as a parent director, or nominate another parent to do so. In the Blessed Edward Bamber Catholic Multi Academy Trust we have provision for two parent directors. This vacancy is for a parent director who has a child at St. Mary’s Catholic Academy. Nominations must be from parents (this includes carers) with children at the academy on the day that nominations close. The post is for four years.
The Board of Directors, with the CEO and headteachers, has overall responsibility for the running of the academies. The Board of Directors has three core strategic functions:
- Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;
- Holding the Executive Director and headteachers to account for the educational performance of the academies and its pupils; and
- Overseeing the financial performance of the academy and making sure its money is well spent.
No special qualifications are needed and the most important thing is to have a keen interest in the academies and be prepared to play an active part in the board’s work. Training is available for all directors and this board of directors has an expectation that those new to being a director attend free induction training.
