Hamble Primary School is currently looking for new governors to join our friendly governing body.

The purpose of the Governing Body is to help set and review the school’s strategic direction and agree improvement objectives, hold the school’s leadership team to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and oversee the financial performance of the school making sure public money is well spent.

Our governors come from a range of different backgrounds, skills and experience but all share a common interest of wanting the best possible education for the children in our school.

We would be delighted to hear from anyone who:-

  • Is interested in children’s education and the performance of the school

  • Is community spirited and would like to represent the community

  • Has 2-3 hours of spare time a week and has energy for the role

  • Is able to occasionally visit the school during the day

  • Is able to work well as part of a team

  • Has an enquiring mind and the confidence to ask questions and debate issues that affect the school

  • Can consider matters objectively and make informed judgements

In looking to fill these vacancies we are particularly interested in applications from people with Finance/Budgetary experience and Health and Safety/Property Maintenance although please do not be put off if you do not have these skills. What is more important is enthusiasm, interest and the willingness to learn.

In return we can offer you:

  • The chance to develop your own personal skills

  • Access to a programme of free training in respect of education/governance matters

  • A sense of achievement in helping make a difference to children reaching their potential

  • Support and guidance from fellow governors

For further information please contact the School Office in person or via email at admin@hamble-pri.hants.sch.uk and a Governor will contact you to answer any questions you have and discuss the application process.

Further information can also be found on the Hampshire County Council website at https://www.hants.gov.uk/educationandlearning/governors/volunteer You will find video, e-learning and written information on the site and all of these will provide you with further details about the role.
