Russet House School is looking for two Governors to join our Governing Body  

Russet House is a community special school situated in the London Borough of Enfield for autistic pupils aged 3 – 11 years old. We are extremely proud of our school and all we have achieved, and we continually strive to improve the provision we offer to our pupils and their families. 

Being a Governor at Russet House is a very important role. Our Governors help to lead our school, contribute to decisions about the whole school and ensure standards are high by providing challenge and support to our school’s Senior Leadership Team.

The role involves:

  • Attending three or four Governing Body or Committee meetings each term of approximately 2.5 to 3 hours, usually at the school, sometimes on-line. At the moment, we meet during the day, but we could meet in the evenings if that would suit more of the governors.
  • Having a specific area of responsibility in a particular aspect of the school, such as health and safety, safeguarding, finances, curriculum. This would involve one or two additional meetings per term with a senior member of staff. At these meetings a Governor plays an important role in providing their perspective.
  • Participating in termly Governor visits which have a specific focus often relating to the curriculum / teaching and learning at our school.
  • Opportunities to participate in other fun activities which make up life at Russet House such as the Christmas concert or sports day.

We are a strong group of Governors with a wide ranging set of skills. We are looking to further strengthen our Governing Body and to recruit committed, skilled and talented individuals who want to make a difference. In particular, but not exclusively, we are looking for individuals with experience in any of the following areas:

  • education
  • autism
  • finance/ business

Please get in touch with the school office (office@russethouse.enfield.sch.uk/ 020 8350 0650) if you are interested in joining our Governing Body team or would like to discuss this further with one of current school Governors.

Finding out more would not commit you!
