Vacancy - Governors for Schools

Co-opted Governor Vacancies

SMART Multi Academy Trust has 8 Primary Schools based in North West Newcastle and all have 1 or 2 vacancies for Co-opted governors. This is an exciting time for the trust as all schools have been inspected by Ofsted recently and judged good. There has been a new board of trustees appointed from November 2018 and more recently a new CEO and Director of Business and Finance. The Trustees and school leaders have worked on the vision and values for the Trust and are moving forward with a range of developments.


Most schools hold full local governing board meetings 3 times per year with some additional meetings and monitoring visits. Most meetings take place at the schools and start between 4:00pm and 5:00pm. We are looking for governors with commitment, a passion for improving education and raising the aspirations of young people in our community.
