We have received three applications for two Parent Governor vacancies so there will be a ballot.
Under normal circumstances you would be able to place your vote into a ballot box at school but this is not possible this time.
I have emailed all parents with a ballot form to complete and return to school in a sealed envelope with your child or in the post by Thursday 5th November 2020. Votes received after this date will not be counted.
Parents can also write their preference without using the form but MUST include their name, their children’s names and classes along with the name of the chosen candidate on the paper so that we can check you are eligible to vote. Send your vote to school in the same way.
We will accept one vote per parent.
The candidates are as follows:
I have been a governor at Ysgol Penmorfa since 2013. I have really enjoyed the role over the past 7 years and am keen to carry on as a Parent Governor with the school. I have 3 children who all have and are still attending Ysgol Penmorfa. I will continue to be an active governor helping the Governing body to robustly question but also support the school’s management team in the running of the school. I have been a member of the Finance and ALN committees for the past 7 years and have been part of the interview panel for a number of Teacher and Staff appointments. I take the role of Parent Governor very seriously and would appreciate the opportunity to continue this role and help ensure Ysgol Penmorfa remains the nurturing and exceptional learning environment for our children that it is already.
I am interested in becoming a school governor as I feel like I would relish the opportunity to become a bigger part of my child’s school. I feel that the skills I use on a daily basis in my workplace would transfer well into this role. I am a therapy radiographer working at Glan Clwyd, and so I am used to working within the data protection framework and maintain confidentiality at all times. I am used to attending various training events and attend regular departmental meetings. I am used to taking minutes, producing agenda, performing audits a and writing reports. I have a bachelor of Science degree in radiotherapy and oncology and have worked in my role for the last 16 yeas. As a parent, I attend school as often as I can, and would look forward to seeing what I could offer as a governor.
I am interested in becoming a governor of the school because I believe I can make a positive contribution to the role and the purpose of being a governor, and also because my daughter is a pupil. I am currently an Executive Director at Oxford University Hospitals where I lead on strategy, partnerships across health, social care, third sector and academia and digital. I am a member of the Trust Board, Investment Committee, Audit Committee and Joint Committee with Oxford University so believe I can bring experience in governance and innovation to the role. Whilst I work in Oxford I live and grew up in Prestatyn and believe a successful school and development of children to achieve their potential is paramount.
