I am writing to you with an exciting opportunity for you to get involved in the life of St Mary’s Catholic Primary School by taking part in the election of Parent and Foundation Academy Committee Representatives.

The Articles of Association and Scheme of Delegation requires that the Academy Committee must include two parent Academy Committee members who have been elected by the parents of registered students of the school and who themselves are parents of registered students of the school at the time of their election. However, any parent who is an elected member of the local authority or employed to work at the school for more than 500 hours in any twelve consecutive months is not eligible to be a Parent Academy Committee Member.

There are currently one vacancy for a Parent Academy Representative, therefore, you are invited to take part in the election of a Parent Academy Committee Member who will serve on the Academy Committee for four years unless they resign the post in the interim.

Nomination forms are available from the school website or office and must be returned to the school no later than 12 noon on Monday 23rd September 2019.  Should only one nomination be received by the official closing date, the candidate will be duly elected unopposed. In the event of there being two or more nominations, an election will take place Friday 4th October 2019. Information on voting arrangements will be sent to you at a later date.

Please note that you should not participate in more nominations than there are vacancies. Each nomination requires two proposers.
