How to Become a Governor

Parent Governor Vacancies

As Parent Governor vacancies arise, all parents and carers will be informed via text and letter. 

Further information on the role of a parent governor can be found here or you may contact the Clerk to the Governors on 0208 575 8222.

If you are a parent or carer of a child registered at The Cardinal Wiseman Catholic School, then you are eligible to stand for election and we hope that you may be interested in putting yourself forward. We would particularly welcome parents with a background in finance or human resources.

If you are interested, it may be helpful for you to know what is involved. The commitment to the role would involve you in attending meetings and undertaking training. The Governing Body meets once a term, as do the sub-committees for: Human Resources, Premises, Curriculum and Finance, governors are asked to be on a minimum of two sub-committees. All the meetings take place on a weekday evening, training is freely available through the Local Authority and the Diocese of Westminster and, on occasions, whole governor training takes place on site.

Parent Governors are elected for a four-year term.
