We welcome applications to our Governing Body.

We welcome applications to our Governing Body.

If you are interested about becoming a governor at the school, you can find the relevant information and application process on the Haringey Council website.

We currently have vacancies for co-opted governors and parent governors. Parent governors are voted onto the Governing Body by other parents of children who attend the school. Parent governors play an important role in shaping the education and experience of all children at Stamford Hill.

Governor person specification:
We expect all governors to be able to demonstrate the following essential qualities and attributes:

  • commitment to improving education for all pupils;
  • ability to work in a professional manner as part of a team and to take collective responsibility for decisions;
  • willingness to learn and to engage in training and development;
  • commitment to the school’s vision and ethos and to the democratic values of freedom, tolerance and respect for the rule of law;
  • literacy, numeracy and IT skills, sufficient to deal with governing body papers and school data

Across the Governing Body as a whole, we are also looking to ensure that a range of specialist skills are covered (but we do not expect any individual governor to have all of these), including: understanding and experience of governance; strategic planning; human resources and performance management; data analysis; financial planning/budgeting; community engagement and volunteering; legal understanding; premises and property management; and experience of working in education/social care/health settings.
We expect all governors to uphold the seven principles of public life (the Nolan principles) which form the basis of the ethical standards expected of all public office holders: selflessness, integrity; objectivity; accountability; openness; honesty; and leadership.
