There are currently four vacancies for Staff Governors, one each for Phoenix, Burfield, White House and Hawkes Farm Academies, to serve on the Academy Committee of Phoenix, White House, Burfield and Hawkes Farm Academies. In the first instance, we are inviting staff from their respective academy to nominate themselves to fill this place. If no members of staff nominate themselves, we will offer an opportunity for members of staff from a partner Academy to put themselves forward.
Staff Governors are elected by and from other staff and are vital to our Academy Committee. They share equally with other STEP Governors the responsibility for carrying out the Academy Committee wide range of responsibilities. If you join our Academy Committee, you will serve for a four-year term, unless you cease employment at the Academy before the end of this period.
Any member of staff interested in becoming a STEP Governor can collect an application pack from their respective Academy Office and are recommended to make an appointment with the Head of School at their academy to discuss the role.
The closing date for the receipt of nominations from each Academy is Friday 21st October.
