Parent Governor Elections
Governors have an important and influential role to play in the life of our school. There is now a vacancy for two parent governors at Padiham St Leonard's. They are elected by the parents of pupils at this school to serve a 4 year term of office. You may, if you wish, put yourself forward for election, using the attached nomination form. Please read the information given with this form.
We do hope you will be able to take part in this election by either becoming a candidate and/or by casting your vote when the time comes.
The timetable for the election is:-
- Nomination form to be returned to me by 12.00 noon on Monday 19th March 2018.
- Ballot papers to be sent to all parents on Wednesday 20th March 2018. (Voting will only take place if there are more nominations than vacancies)
- Ballot papers to be returned to me by 12.00 noon on Wednesday 11th April 2018.
- The votes will be counted at 1.30 pm on Wednesday 11th April after which the result will be announced.
Regulations disqualify certain individuals from becoming a governor. The attached appendix lists the disqualification criteria. Prospective governors should read it carefully before proceeding with their nomination.
