Parent Governor ballot
Good news, we have three parents who have put themselves forward to stand for the Parent Governor vacancy, this means a ballot:
- Suzie Howard, who has a child in Nursery & Year 1
- Caspar Mason, who has children in Years 1 & 4
- Steven Whaley, who has a child in Year 1
Personal statements & ballot papers will be sent out on Tuesday 10th November 2020. There is a 14-day window for ballot papers and parent declaration forms to be returned to the school, deadline Tuesday 24th November 2020 at 3.30pm. Any votes received after this date will not be accepted.
Due to Covid, there will be three central secured areas for you to return your forms safely.
- Areas are outside the Main Hall from Wyndham Road entrance, outside Year 1 block and outside Year 6 entrance.
- These boxes are Fielding blue and will have a sign clearly stating that they are ballot boxes.
- You can also return these forms by Royal Mail but not by pupil post.
Ealing Council has strict rules about parent governor elections. We would prefer to complete all of this electronically but have been told that we cannot.
The double envelope system
You will be provided with a ballot paper, parent’s declaration form and 2 envelopes, 1 x small per parent and 1 x larger per family. These will be sent home by pupil post on Tuesday 10th November. If you do not receive these forms, you will need to come into the school office and complete a parent verification form. This form states that you have either not received the original papers or that these maybe lost. Completed forms cannot be sent electronically.
When recording your vote on the ballot paper, please clearly mark which candidate you wish to vote for (please do not mark this paper in any way which may identify you). When you have completed the ballot paper this must be placed in the smaller envelope and sealed. You should also complete the declaration form which goes in the large envelope along with the smaller envelopes sealed. You can return these forms to the designated areas as explained above or Royal Mail.
Electronic documents will not be accepted. All votes are kept in a secure area until the count.
The count for the election will take place on Friday 27th November at 9.45am. Notification of the successful candidate will be made known on the Latest News on Friday 27th November 2020.
