East Midlands Academy Trust (EMAT) has a family of schools across Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes local authorities and is in the process of growing.

Our Local Advisory Boards (LAB) are made up of Parents, Staff, and Co-opted Governors. Co-opted Governors include both parents and members of the community. Our Governors may come to us through a variety of routes and with a range of different backgrounds, skills and experiences, but they are volunteers who work together for the benefit of the school and are the link between the school and the community it serves.

We are currently looking for 4 new Co-opted Governors to serve at Shepherdswell & Orchard Academies in Milton Keynes and Prince William Academy in Oundle and we would be delighted to hear from anyone who has:

•             A keen interest in the performance of the school

•             A desire to contribute to and represent the community

•             An open and enquiring mind

•             The ability to look at issues objectively

•             The confidence to ask questions

•             A willingness to listen and make informed judgements

•             The ability to work well with others

Being a Governor can be enjoyable, stimulating and rewarding. Being a governor in our trust offers:

•             A chance to develop skills in strategic management

•             The opportunity to work with our team of governors and staff in improving our schools

•             Training to develop an understanding of specific school management issues

•             A sense of achievement in making a difference to our schools

•             The pleasure of helping students reach their potential

 

The LAB meets a minimum of 6 times a year; 3 as the Full Board and 3 as the Standards and Performance Committee. As a Governor you may be required to have a special responsibility, i.e. as the Special Educational Needs, Health & Safety, Pupil Premium or Safeguarding.
