Parent Governor Elections
As mentioned in previous newsletters we have two Parent Governor vacancies and we invited nominations by 22nd April. We received two nominations, therefore a ballot was not required. Once the two governors have been successfully signed up and registered with Essex County Council, following the completion of the required paperwork and procedures, they will be formally introduced.
