Governing Body Vacancies

Fountaindale is a Specialist SEN school situated in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. The school offers an inclusive education for pupils aged 3 to 18 years, who have complex physical, medical and sensory needs.

The principal aim of our school is to provide a stimulating, challenging curriculum within a caring environment. This supports each young person to develop to their full potential educationally, physically, socially and personally. Allowing them to become valuable and valued members of society.

Fountaindale staff are highly trained, professionals, who demonstrate an outstanding commitment to the young people of Fountaindale, their families and the school.

Currently Fountaindale is in an evolving process as it moves towards joining a multi-academy trust. Alongside this process we strive to ensure the children and young people of Fountaindale receive the highest standard of provision in all aspects of their school life.

The Governing Body is seeking governors, who have the skills and commitment to join our team.

Ideally we would like to appoint new governors who can bring any of the following:

  • An understanding and experience of education, school systems and procedures.
  • HR knowledge.
  • Leadership and management experience.
  • Experience in strategic planning.
  • Financial management experience
  • Links to community groups.
  • An understanding and experience in social work.
  • An understanding of child psychology.

On occasions you would need to be available during the school day to carry out your governor role.

This is a voluntary role that is highly rewarding. As a governor you would be supporting the amazing pupils of Fountaindale, helping them to believe, achieve and succeed.  Full induction support and training will be available.
