Headteacher’s Blog #9 10/11/2017











The Downham Market Academy (DMA) Local Governing Body (LGB) will work closely with the Cambridgeshire Educational Trust to help DMA with its local affairs.

· Parent Governors

We now have three volunteers who would be willing to be elected as new Parent Governors on the newly formed LGB:

Peter Burt, Susie Louise White and Helen Richings.

We also have two existing Parent Governors who are willing to continue:

Rebecca Young Nicholson and Andy Rayner.

If there are any other parents out there who would like to be considered, or who just want to know what would be involved, please contact the Head’s PA in the first instance. Governors are elected for a 4-year term of office.

· Community Governors are appointed internally by the LGB and are people from the local community who bring along their skills and are interested in working with the school. We have two volunteers who will be appointed as Community Governors:

Steve Waters and Simon Prior

We also have two existing Community Governors who are willing to continue:

Sarah-Jane Napper and Jeanette Redding.

Again, if you would like to suggest any others, please let us know.

· Staff Governors

Andrew Crumpton and Brian Reeve-Hayes have volunteered to be our staff Governors, in addition to Headteacher Rolf Purvis, so we are nearly up and running.

· Our next meeting will be on the 7 December 2017.
