Calling Volunteer School Governors


The Federation of Cherry Oak School and Victoria School is looking to recruit 3 new Governors to fill vacancies left by retiring Governors.


Being a school Governor is a wonderful way to give back to the community, especially if you have a passion for quality special needs education.


The commitment is for up to 5 meetings of the Full Governing Board per year (currently 7-9pm Wednesday evenings). Ideally, each Governor should also participate in one of our Committees:

  • Teaching & Learning
  • Buildings, Health and Safety
  • Personnel
  • Finance.


These meet once per term (3 per year) with the exception of Finance which may meet up to 5 times per year.


We welcome Governors' involvement in the school and visits to see education in practice or to attend special events. 


Currently, we especially need a Governor to join our Buildings, Health and Safety Committee, so would welcome interest from anyone in construction, project management, health & safety, resilience or critical incident response.


If you think you might be interested, please contact either the:

Head Teacher: Julie Fardell


Chair of Governors: Clare Mills


Thank you for your interest.
