Vacancy for Finance Governor

The Governing Body of Shirley Infant and Junior Schools is currently recruiting a Finance Governor. The role will involve advising the Governing Body in financial matters relating to the two schools including forecasting, budgeting and spending throughout the year. It would be ideally suited to someone with experience leading or working within a finance department or anyone else with an ability to review and digest financial information such as budgets and management accounts. Experience of operating within a school environment (eg, as a School Business Manager) would be useful, but is not essential. 

If you are interested in the role and playing a pivotal part in the Governance of the schools as we navigate through these challenging times, then please get in touch with Peter Gould, Chair of Governors at chair@shirleyschools.co.uk or via the school office.

The role is voluntary and you will be required to sign up to a code of conduct and also to undergo a disclosure and barring service (DBS) check.

Shirley Infant School and Shirley Junior School share a single Local Governing Body (LGB) that has responsibility for both schools.  Our aim is to improve outcomes for all children through the sharing of expertise, resources and facilities, as well as ensuring a seamless transition from Infant to Junior School.

The role of the Governing Body is to monitor, challenge and support the school at a strategic level. The full governing body usually meets once a term, focussing on a range of areas including standards, finance, safeguarding and strategic planning.  There are also two committees that meet every half term.

Shirley Infant School and Shirley Junior School are part of the Hamwic Education Trust, a Multi Academy Trust.  The Governing Body operates under its Scheme of Delegation and LGB Terms of Reference. Both these documents can be seen here.

Both schools are also part of the  Jeffreys Education Partnership which brings together local schools who are part of Hamwic Education Trust.
