Whilst all have provided a valuable contribution through their terms of oﬃce, I would like to make a special mention of thanks to Mike Lucas who has been a governor at Old Mill for over 15 years, spending many of these as Chair of Governors.
The Parent Governor election process has commenced and I encourage any eligible parent who would like to take a more active role in supporting the school’s continuing development and improvement to apply.
The new LA Governor vacancy - plus the one we carry forward from last year - are posts where
appointment is made by the LA authority; as a school we are now encouraged to put forward any
suitable candidate we can identify for their consideration. The Community Governor vacancies are
positions appointed by the governing body in order to bring in specialist skills, expertise and experience onto the body. Rules of eligibility are diﬀerent for LA and Community posts and you do not need to be a parent. If you have, or know anyone that has legal, ﬁnancial, HR or managerial skills and/or experience, or are an aspiring leader or chair, I would be in interested in discussing our vacancies with you.
