Dear Parents/Carers,

A vacancy for one elected Parent Governor needs to be filled. Accordingly, arrangements are being made to elect a Parent Governor by means of a secret ballot.

All parents who have a child at the school are eligible for election and are entitled to vote.  Parents are entitled to put forward a nomination which must be supported by two other parents of children registered at the school and which must also contain the signed consent of the person being nominated.  Only one member of a family may act as a supporter of a nominated person.  It should be understood that any nominated person may subsequently withdraw within three days of the closing date for nominations by writing to the Returning Officer, c/o The Headteacher.

If you are interested in standing for the Governor Election process or would like to nominate somebody please contact Lisa Foster on lfoster@ems.hartlepool.sch.uk by 22nd October 2018, who will then forward you the Nomination papers to be completed.

The successful candidate shall serve as Parent Governor for four years until 31st August 2022.

With every good wish.

Yours sincerely

Stephen Hammond
Headteacher
