Mayfield School is a large special school for pupils aged 2-19 years old and it is designated to provide an education for pupils with Severe and Profound learning disabilities and for primary aged children with SEMH (Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs).
The governing body sets the vision, values, ethos and strategic direction of the school and works closely with staff to ensure that the strategic vision is realised.
The work of the governors focuses around three key areas:
• Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
• Holding executive leaders to account for educational performance of the organisation and its pupils, and the performance management of staff
• Overseeing financial performance and making sure money is well spent.
We are looking to increase our membership and to complement the existing skills set of the governing body. Ideally you will have experience or a background in either education, health care, finance, facilities management, legal or human resources. However, if you believe your skills or knowledge could benefit and help shape the future direction of our school and then we would really like to hear from you.
The Governing body currently meet using a blend of virtual and face to face meetings. The meetings are held on Monday's at 3.30pm and usually last 2-2.5 hours depending on content. The face to face meeetings are held at Mayfield School. There are around 6-10 meetings per year and other commitments throughout the year.
We ask that you are willing to give the necessary time and commitment to role and that you bring a skill or particular set of knowledge to the group. We are looking for individuals who will be an advocate for the school but will also challenge our thinking and practices to ensure we are the very best that we can be.
If you are interested or would like to talk about this opportunity further then please contact Stuart Heron, Headteacher, by email at: email@example.com or call 01803 328375 for more details.
